In this post I’ve concentrated on art where the pins are the main focus, rather than a way of art. Fortunately there’s a short video, where we can see a fantastic pin artist in action. He uses push pins to make large-canvas portraits and they are stunning. It is a real challenge to create faces with the quality of something digitally produced. By the author’s own confession it took the most time, the most patience, the most research and the most money to create. This portrait required approximately 15,000 push pins. The final portrait weighs about 19 kg, which includes the cork board. The author has built a wooden frame to support it, so it wouldn’t break under its own weight. The soundtrack in the video is a song by the author, called “Time Catcher”.
