Using salt he dyes himself, Bashir Sultani spends up to five hours creating each of his masterpieces.
His pieces can use between 10 and 20 full salt shakers and, since he started experimenting with salt, he has taken over 100 time lapses of his creations for his YouTube channel.
One of the artist’s specialities is creating realistic meals out of salt, including a tray of sushi, a fresh trout and a delicious looking burger.
He has also shaken out portraits of Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Pinkman and Walter White from the hit series Breaking Bad.
Other creations include a stunning portrait of two grateful koi fish, Spongebob Squarepants and Dory from Finding Nemo.
But the artist’s favourite pieces are his salt galaxies, which bring outer space to the dinner table in shades of blue, purple, yellow and white salt.
Although the artist can spend hours on each of his creations, the beautiful portraits are always destroyed within minutes, only preserved on video.
