London-based artist Joe Black uses a very unique medium to create stunning murals. The artist uses thousands of tiny objects from small toy soldiers, chess pieces to various hardware items like nuts and bolts to create large-scale portraits of iconic and historical figures. The medium used plays an important role to portray the message behind the creation.
This mural of US President Barack Obama below has been created with thousand of black and white toy soldiers and has been named “Shoot to Kill” signifying the fight of good and the evil.
Joe Black will be holding his first solo exhibition, Ways of Seeing, at the Opera Gallery in London through November 19, 2013.
