Artist Creates ‘3D Paintings’ with Hammer and Nails

Sculptor Marcus Levine paints large canvases—but instead of working with a brush, he meticulously hammers nails into them to produce detailed studies of the human form.

To attain the tone and texture he needs to represent the human body, Levine hammers nails in at varying heights and distances, all done free-hand and without any tracing.

Levine prefers his unusual medium as he finds the “interplay between the rigid, angular nails and the soft curves of the human torso would be more striking”, he explained on his website.
