Marcus Levine Nail Art
Yorkshire sculptor Marcus Levine uses nails to express the human form. The number of nails he uses for each sculpture varies from 3,000 to over 50,000. “From morning sun to evening sun the shadows across the sculptures change and affect the contrast and, by altering artificial lighting, the sculptures can appear as light as a pencil sketch or as dark as a charcoal life drawing,” Levine says. “I regularly cut myself and occasionally hit my finger with the hammer. So I do suffer for my art” he added! This form of art doesn't stop just here. Andrew Meyers, a Laguna Beach based native, is another artist who uses a similar form of expression. He goes through a multi-step process to create incredible works of art you almost have to see (or touch) to believe using screws. “For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths,” he says.
