Meet German Artist Werner Härtl Who Paints with Diluted Cow Dung
German artist Werner Härtl has made a name for himself using diluted cow dung as his unique painting medium. He began experimenting with cow dung in 2012 while working on a farm, and today he even collects it directly from cows as they relieve themselves.
Härtl’s paintings, inspired by rural life, mainly feature cows, tractors, fields, village scenes and self-portraits. He uses a dilution method to create different shades with the dung, resulting in sepia-like artworks. Interestingly, once the artwork dries, it no longer retains any smell, making it a truly unique art form.
