Peruvian artist creates paintings underwater


See The Telegraph

Wearing scuba diving gear, Pascual Mimbela dives into the Pacific waters of Talara province with his brushes, spatulas, oils and canvases.

Mimbela paints the colourful fish he sees glide by, as well as the reefs and other aquatic sea life.

Mimbela said he became fascinated with the sea when he was a child, and dreamt of one day painting from the ocean floor.

“All my life I’ve painted boats, fish, beaches and waves. But this time, I decided to take it further,” he said.
