Recreating Old Masterpieces with a Nail Gun

Nail gun art by Chen Chun-Hao (3)

Artist Chen Chun-Hao uses a nail gun to replicate traditional Chinese landscape paintings of masters Fan Kuan and Guo Xi. Each “mosquito nail” creates a dot on the canvas, and when viewing the dots as a whole you see mountains, forests, streams,  and other elements.
