Incredible 3D Screw Art Portraits

Wow. This makes me want to skip out on work today and head straight to Home Depot to pick up some power tools, plywood and approximately 10,000 screws. Yeah, yeah I know that I would never be able to recreate what Andrew Meyers does, but I can at least dream right?

American artist Andrew Myers uses screws to create amazing, detailed, 3D-portraits of people. Myers spends just two or three days and up to ten thousand screws for each piece. He takes a sheet of plywood, makes a sketch of a portrait in pencil, and then begins to place the screws at different depths turning a flat image into a volume masterpiece. Easier said than done.

Check them out – so amazing!

Biography:  Since his early childhood, Andrew Myers has been artistically influenced by european life and culture.  Born in Braunshweig, Germany and raised in Ciudad Real, Spain his exposure to modern continental living and classical architecture prompted the universal and classical themes, yet modern design found in his artwork.

At the age of 20, Myers applied to the Art Institute of Southern California (now known as the Laguna College of Art and Design); with no previous art training, he was accepted based upon the natural talent his application portfolio evidenced.  The young artist developed his skills through advanced figurative sculpture and accelerated painting curriculum.  While these two and a half years of creative training provided Myers with the basic working knowledge of the artistic field, it was his drive, passion, and leap of faith into work as a full time artist that allowed him to cultivate his particular style.
