Portraits of Lincoln And Tupac Made Of Bullets

Portraits of Lincoln And Tupac Made Of Bullets

David S. Palmer, an artist who trained at Ball State University, is obsessed by celebrities who have died by bullet wound. His portraits, of John Lennon, Tupac, and Abe Lincoln have a distinct commonality —each is prepared using bullets to form the faces. It is kind of dot work, sure, but it is also a literal take on the dark finish of each subject. [Free York]
