Hammer, Nails, Thread and Wood- Beyond Simple String Art

Justin Timberlake String Art Portrait

At first glance, the portrait you see appears to be sketched or painted. When one zooms in, you realize that it is not made from paint or pencil. Zenyk Palagniuk, a native of Ukraine, who now lives in Dallas, created this realistic portrait. After 8 days, nearly 15 miles of thread and 13,000 nails 'For Justin Timberlake' came to life. The video of how it was done has been posted to YouTube and viewed over three million times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIXEpn_ntME
