A micro-artist, living and working in Birmingham, Graham Smart is known for producing miniature pieces of art and has spent over 50 years going to physical and mental extremes to produce the highest-quality hand engravings ever seen. Appearing in news features internationally and the subject of many television programmes, Graham is considered to be one of the most talented living micro artists in the world.

His achievements include engraving The Lord’s Prayer on the head of a gold pin measuring just 2mm across and the words “Nothing is Impossible” engraved along the cutting edge of a traditional razor blade alongside the Jane Austin & Harry Kane engraved bank notes.
