Mok Zijie – also known by his Instagram moniker @artcrop, is a Singaporean artist who uses watercolour paints to create beautiful illustrations of mini houses, buildings and plants. His artworks are so small – some even as tiny as fifty cent coins – and incredibly detailed that you may need a magnifying glass to see them clearly! With over 12.6k followers on Instagram, Zijie’s popularity has also allowed him to work with renowned brands such as Daniel Wellington and PAUL HEWITT. We definitely hope to see his artwork on more brands in the future!
