Creative artist David Foster is behind these hammered star portraits. Each of these pictures depicts a celebrity, and was created using nothing but nails and a hammer. Foster's nail portraits include actors, musicians, authors and various other famous figures.

Among Foster's celebrity depictions, viewers can find faces like Marilyn Monroe, Stephen Fry, John Lennon, David Bowie and Nelson Mandela. At a glance it's very hard to believe that these portraits were built using nails (after all, they're extremely detailed). However, when people see these works from the side, it becomes clear that that's the case.

Foster paints his nails as needed when creating these portraits, though most of his works don't require much color. These iconic figure portraits are really impressive.
