Marcus Levine

Nail sculptor Marcus Levine has a pop up in Ilkley.  We popped in after an early evening stop at the Bar T’at and were delighted to have met him.

You wouldn’t think that an artist dedicated to using nails as a medium could achieve such delicate and beautiful work  He uses thousands of nails knocked into the canvas/board/wood to form an image.  I asked him if he ever put a nail in the wrong place and then had to take it out.  Not generally he said,  but he did have one piece with just one slightly out of place.

The exhibition in the empty unit overlooking the main car park in Ilkley town centre for eight weeks.  I think there’s some sort of event on Thursday of next week.  You can find him on Twitter   @levine_art
