I guess today’s post goes well with my previous one, Amazing 3D Wall Murals, except that this time the art is in actual 3D.
Andrew Myers uses screws to make his incredible 3D portraits. He first makes a portrait drawing on a wood panel. Then he drills screws at different depths into the wood. Each portrait is made up of thousands of screws. Every single screw is then painted with oil paint to make the portrait come alive even more. The background is made up of phone book pages.
This last portrait is called ‘Faded Thoughts’. Andrew Myers didn’t want his portraits to be “dead” anymore, so he decided to experiment and add some motion into it. Worked out pretty good I think! On his website you can find a short documentary about the process of making ‘Faded Thoughts’.
