Hammer & Nail Pointillism: Stunning Portraits by David Foster

Hammer & Nail Pointillism: Stunning Portraits by David Foster | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it

We’ve seen some pretty impressive examples of classic pointillism, and now we are pleased to bring you these hammer & nail stippling works by David Foster. Using thousands of nails hammered to a canvas, he varies the solidity and shading to create stunning portraits of celebrities, animals, and of course, a hammer and nail!

The level of realism Foster achieves with the nails is unbelievable and it has taken several years to master his technique. Each piece begins with a photograph, which Foster reproduces in ink by meticulously stippling every contour. Then he enlarges the drawing to see where the nails should go, and starts hammering away.

Beautiful Sand Drawings by Jim Denevan

Beautiful Sand Drawings by Jim Denevan | Architecture and Architectural Jobs | Scoop.it
Using a rake or a piece of driftwood, California artist Jim Denevan shapes monumental works on the sandy beaches of the world, spending hours on huge and often complex geometric patterns destined to be washed away at the turn of the tide.

 

Despite their accuracy, his designs are the improvised work of the moment and are executed freehand, without plan or measurement. Photographs of his ephemeral works are in major collections, including that of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. ‘It’s like drawing on a piece of paper,’ he says, ‘except my piece of paper happens to be several miles across.’ A single drawing can involve the need for him to cover 40 km or more.
