We can't imagine he learned this at art school.

There’s abstract art, and then there’s whatever this is.

Argentinian artist Leandro Granato has conquered a new form of artistic expression: in order to create his masterpieces, he snorts paint through his nose, then cries onto the canvas. The paint that he snorts causes his tears to change colors, and his tears–which, because of an “unusual connection between his nose and eyes,” squirt out of his eyeballs at weirdly long range–create colorful rivers on the canvas.

You probably shouldn’t try this at home.
