Ukrainian Artist Wrapped 24 km of Thread Around 13,000 Nails to Create This Masterpiece

Ukrainian artist Zenyk Palagniuk

Ukrainian artist Zenyk Palagniuk wrapped 24 km (15 mi) of thread around 13,000 nails to create an amazingly realistic portrait of Justin Timberlake. It took the artist over 200 hours to complete. Palagniuk began by sketching the portrait on a large piece of plywood. He then hammered in all of the nails and wrapped the thread, varying the thickness to create the final portrait.

In the video below filmed by Vova Zagranovsky we get to see the creative process from start to finish.
