Lots and lots and lots of thumbtacks – some 50,000 in all in a series Woolery tells Britain’s Daily Mail was inspired by Fruit Loops. His work is pretty mind-bending; you can check more out at Woolery’s official site. Note the cool titles which pun the medium; for instance, the Jay-Z piece is called “The Tackover.”
Not only is the work amazing, it’s also inspiring. The Daily Mail notes that a percentage of many of Woolery's pieces go to good causes including the Harlem School of Arts in an effort to give back to underprivileged communities and to support the arts.
“I am now an expert on thimbles and own a thumb-specific ice pack," Woolery tells the paper. "'I had to ice my thumbs and elbow every night so I could continue pushing pins.'”
And if you happen to be heading to New York, Woolery’s first solo exhibition – amusing titled “Bruised Thumbs” – launches February 23.
