POINTILLISM
Pointillism is an Impressionist painting technique developed by Georges Seurat, based on colour theory and the use of complementary colours in particular. The painting is created using countless tiny dots of pure colour, placed in close proximity to each other. When viewed at a distance, the human eye is meant to fuse the individual dots together into areas of solid colour.
