David Foster is an incredibly creative artist who specialized in converting the mundane into something spectacular. He works with pointillism. Pointillism is an ancient method of painting. It is a process “in which small distinct points of pure color applied in patterns for forming an image.”
David, a creative genius that he is, decided to take pointillism in the other direction. Instead of using color, he chose nails.
My journey into art has come from a career in Architecture. My love of technical drawing has matured into using just ink pen stippling to create shadow and light with just dots and now more excitingly with hammer and nails. I have always been fascinated with how little information the brain needs to interpret a picture and love the simplicity of a picture made up from just dots…The whole process thrills me, taking just a hammer and a box of nails and arranging them into an artwork…You really need to see my work up close as photographs don’t do it justice.
