These Sculptures are Made Up Entirely of Steel Nails

The steel sculptures designed by the American sculptor John Bisbee are as intricate as they come.

His new collection of artwork does not just require the hammering of nails into a wall or surface, but the manipulation of those nails beforehand to fit the shape, style and size of the image that the artist has imagined in his head. The resulting pieces of art are extremely diverse, making up patterns that range from whimsical and severe to sensible. Whether placed in a display behind a protective glass encasing or on the floor of a museum, the steel sculptures never fail in their ability to have a jarring impact on the viewer.

These pieces of art speak to the intricacy and creative vision with which John Bisnee approaches his work.
