‘Pointillism’ can be described as “a technique of neo-impressionist using tiny dots which become blended in the viewers eye to create one image”. ‘Pointillism’ as been attempted by many and only few and far between have actually been noteworthy. However, artist David Foster, has taken this concept to the next level by exchanging dots with hardware nails.
Foster creates these inspiring pieces of art by hammering in thousands of nails into a canvas. His award winning creations vary from portraits of celebrities to still life images. Foster is unique in the way he has managed to capture such a high level of realism. A technique that has taken him years to master and perfect. By taking inspiration from his background in architecture and combining that with a fascination of how the human brain interprets images David Foster has given the world some artwork that blows your mind.
