TRADITIONAL CHINESE ART MADE WITH A NAIL GUN
Taiwanese artist Chen Chun-Hao is bringing a thousand year old art form into the 21st century, using modern tools which would rarely be considered for making art. Using a nail gun and small “mosquito nails” (tiny headless nails), he shoots thousands into canvas covered boards to reproduce the look of traditional Chinese ink landscape paintings. From a distance these mediums smoothly merge together, forming fine lines and delicate shading, but from a closer perspective their sharp metallic nature comes forth.
