Marcus Levine Nail Art
By Eric • Apr 2, 2011 • Selected Work
Unlike Andrew Myers who uses screws to create three dimensional portraits, 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!
