Andrew Myers is screwing art … literally. Lying somewhere between painting and sculpture, Myers creates portraits by painting the heads of screws and drilling them into backing boards made from telephone book pages. Each work of art usually takes between 8,000 and 10,000 screws, but produces amazing textures. Perhaps more people should screw art. In the nicest possible way, of course.
