We demonstrate both theoretically and experimentally the generation of a tunable two-dimensional superoscillating optical field through the interference of multiple Airy beams. The resulting pattern exhibits self-healing properties for a set of sub-Fourier diffraction spots with decreasing dimensions. Such spatial optical fields might find applications in microscopy, particle manipulation, and nonlinear optics.
