Magnetic Self-Portrait Meticulously Constructed with 7,000 Hand-Painted Screws #ArtTuesday

Artist Andrew Myers created this surreal, 3d, self portrait using nothing but painted screws. Via My Modern Met:

It took the artist a month of working “long and arduous days” to complete Opposites Attract. Comprising over 7,000 screws, each of them is individually painted and fastened into a large 40-inch by 80-inch wood panel clad in white automotive paint. The stunning result elevates the everyday screw from ubiquitous building material into a contemporary art form—something you’d never expect from it.
