Eric Daigh’s Push-Pin Mosaics

Michigan based artist Eric Daigh creates incredibly detailed portraits by sticking thousands of push-pins into notice boards.

32-year-old Daigh begins his work with a digital photo of his subject. He uses a computer to turn it into a low resolution, five-color image (red, blue and yellow,black and white). He then uses a grid map that shows him where to stick each needle.

Eric Daigh holds the Guinness record for the world’s biggest push-pin portraits. His largest works are up to 2 meters  tall and number around 20,000 push-pins. They take about eight months to complete and are much more detailed than his smaller portraits.
