3D Screw Portraits By Andrew Myers

Anderw Myers creates amazing 3D portraits by drilling thousands of screws into a plywood panel then paints over the head of each screw to enhance the 3D effect. His screw portraits are made from lifeless objects but with the right use of shadows and oil paints he creates distinctively unique and realistic pieces.

“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.”
