Where form meets function

Flavorwire reports, “California-based artist Andrew Meyers’ screw portraits take several steps to execute. First, he places pages from a phone book on top of a plywood panel base. Then, he sketches his subject’s face and pre-drills 7,000 to 10,000 holes by hand. Once the screws are in at the correct depth, he paints over each head individually to create the finished product, which looks more like a portrait than a sculpture.”

The results are surprisingly delicate and have sold for as much as $35,000.
