What This Artist Uses To Create Portraits Will Blow Your Mind

August 18, 2015

Kumi Yamashita was born in Japan and now lives and works in New York City. To me, personally, her most incredible series is called "Constellation."

She uses a wooden panel painted solid white and drills into it thousands of small galvanized nails. Then, she creates her portraits using a single, unbroken, sewing thread.

That's right, ONE continuous thread.
