So…This shirt is made up of 6500 screws!

So...This shirt is made up of 6,500 screws!

Andrew Myers – A Laguna Beach-based artist stunned everyone with his unique works that were made by patiently drilling in 8,000 to 10,000 screws into plywood panel. Myers doesn’t rely on any computer software to guide him. Instead, he drills in screws at different depths all by instinct to create his magnificent 3-D portraits.

In his latest work, titled “It’s been a long day,” Myers made a 4 foot by 4 foot sculpture of a men’s dress shirt. It consists of 6,500 screws, oil paint, French newspaper clippings from the 1910’s to 30’s, and wood.

Myers recently redesigned his website. It includes, not only his trademark screw portraits, but also some thought-provoking bronze sculptures, as well. Hop on over there to see his full body of work.

New Electrifying Palette Knife Portraits by Françoise Nielly

New Electrifying Palette Knife Portraits by Françoise Nielly

French painter Françoise Nielly uses a palette knife to create highly stylized portraits that pop with color. The artist has already produced a number of new paintings in 2013 that highlight her exuberant aesthetic and technique. The textured works juxtapose contrasting yet complementing colors to create artistic renditions of deeply expressive faces that tend to sway toward the sensual.

Using a colorful array of oil paints, Nielly manages to create figurative portraits that have an abstract quality about them. Each face is composed of blocks of expertly applied color to offer a sense of realism mixed with creativity. Additionally, the rawness of the coarse strokes heighten the passionate eroticism that each piece exudes.
