Andrew Myers’ 3D Screw Portraits: No 3D Glasses Needed!
March 21st, 2012
Have you ever thought about making portraits using screws? I never did but that didn’t stop Andrew Myers from using thousands of Phillips head screws to create these incredible three-dimensional portraits.
Each portrait is made up out of about 8,000 to 10,000 individual screws, carefully placed into a sheet of plywood.
Technically speaking, these are mixed-media art pieces, since once he’s done screwing around, he uses oil paint, paper, and other things to finish up his portraits. While the portraits aren’t completely rendered in 3D, they’ve got just enough depth to make them stand out.
Andrew Myers is a sculptor based in Laguna Beach, California, and he is probably one of the only artists using screws in this way.
