When I was little I used to think the world was actually black and white in the old days.

Screw That

POSTED BY NickJ ON 17 APR 2012 @ 10:11 AM
California-based artist/sculpter Andrew Myers is without a doubt one of the most patient and strong-willed creatives I've ever seen. Not happy with just whipping your trusty old water colour or charcoal portrait, the dude uses thousands of screws to produce mind-blowing 3D faces. 

His multi-step process is not only finnicky and labour intensive, it's all done by hand. He first lays down a base made from plywood which is then covered with pages from a phone book. Oh, and not just any random Yellow Pages, but the one in which the subject is listed. He then hand drills over 10,000 holes that are then painted individually to create the shading and colour of the subjects face. Ugh, i'm tired from just writing about the process.

His latest work, Fading Steps, came from a dissatisfaction with the "...dead portrait look" and an urge to "...make a scene, something that appears to be happening that isn't really happening". 

To give you a better idea of what I mean, check out this vid Myers made with the help of filmmaker Benjamin Pitts .
