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.
We’ve seen all sorts of mosaic art made from unusual things, even the Mona Lisa created with coffee cups, but screws? Andrew Meyers creates these tactile 3D sculptures from up to 10,000 screws.
