When it comes to the humble drill and some screws, their most obvious use is a DIY job at home. Not so if you’re visual artist Andrew Myers, who uses a combination of precise drilling and literally thousands of screws to create these simply majestic life size portraits.
They take him anywhere between two to three days to create, he initially starts with a sheet of plywood, creates an outline and then meticulously positions each screw one at a time. Each is drilled to a specific length, to give depth to the image.
We think they’re fantastic and you can see many more examples of his painstaking work via his official website.
