Screw You! Portraits Made with Power Tools

Look closely at these potraits. Now closer. Closer. No! Closer.

Can you guess on what these portraits are painted?


They are, of course, flat head/countersink head screws, set in at varying heights to create depth within the image.

Dana reports,

Andrew Myers is a California-based artist who goes through a multi-step process to create incredible works of art. He starts with a plywood panel base, on top of which he places pages of a phone book. He then draws a face, followed by pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes by hand. As he drills in the screws, Myers doesn’t rely on computer software to guide him – he figures it out along the way as he creates a 3D quality with his artworks by sinking screws at different depths. Ummm… wow.
