Portraits Made of Screws by Andrew Myers

California based artist Andrew Myers drives screws at varying depths into plywood and paints over them, creating unique 3D images.

Andrew Myers starts with a plywood panel upon which he places pages of a phone book. He then draws out a face and drills 8,000 to 10,000 screws into each portrait.

For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths,” he said. “There’s nothing planned out. I draw out a figure on the board and figure out the depths.

“The real challenge comes when the sculpture is done and I have to get rid of the flat drawing. It’s hard because of the screws — you can’t get a brush behind them. I did figure out a way to do it, but I’m keeping it a secret.”

  1. WOW! These are so cool! It must be very time consuming to put all the screws in, I suppose this is considered mixed media?
