3-Dimensional Screw Portraits By Andrew Myers

3-Dimensional Screw Portraits By Andrew Myers

Sculptor and artist Andrew Myers, from Laguna Beach, Californa, has come out with a new type of art we haven’t seen much of before. He creates 3 dimensional portraits by drilling 8,000 to 10,000 individual screws into a plywood panel, then paints over the head of each screw to enhance the 3D effect.

“I liked the ideas of using screws because of the industrial aspect and the harshness that comes with using it as a material,” Myers told AOL News.

Each portrait took Myers around 6 months to complete and although he sells his work for as much as $35,000 a piece, he’s not doing it for money.
