Marcus Levine Nail Art

0 Posted by - April 8, 2011 - Sculpture, Showcases

The sculptural works of british artist Marcus Levine enact a physical pointillism, each composed of thousands of nails hammered into wood panels. All works are completed freehand without any sketches or tracing onto the boards.

The number of nails used will vary from 15,000 to his largest sculpture with 52,000.

    The Internet, when properly used, is such an awesome tool/discovery. Without it you would not know people like Marcus Levine even existed. I am very impressed by your work. You are in inspiration to this carpenter. Thank you
