Is Art Screwed?

 Screw Art
(no, I’m not being rude, it’s art made from screws)

The humble screw, of which there are probably hundreds in your home has now been transformed into incredible works of art.

Andrew Meyers’s artwork is described as “Distinct. Expressive. Tactile.” his use of screws to create portraits is as amazing as it is time consuming. Imagine screwing in all those screws to precisely the correct depth and position.

Andrew depicts the portrait of his sister using approximately 10,000 screws, oil paint, and telephone book pages.

The details of these “paintings” is amazing.

 

It looks like an ordinary collared shirt on a hanger but is actually constructed from thousands of screws

I love this collard shirt he created, and this close up gives you a great look at the details.
