Thousands of Hammered Nails Form Detailed Portraits
Artist David Foster recreates iconic images by hammering thousand of nails onto a canvas. His artworks begin with a photograph that he then translates into a sketch; proceeding to hammer nails into place to create the incredible effect.
Nail head by nail head, dot by dot, the pointillist images slowly emerge as Foster builds across the canvas. His smaller drawings average only about 5,000 nails while some of the larger pieces can include as many as 30,000! The artist says, “I have always been fascinated with how little information the brain needs to interpret a picture and love the simplicity of a picture made up from just dots.”
