Bullet Hole Art

Walton Creel’s artwork, oddly enough, makes me think of when I was learning to paint with watercolor. It’s a strange comparison to make, I realize, but I remember that my biggest qualm with watercolor was how unforgiving it was. Well that’s nothing like how unforgiving gun art is.  Just imagine…only one more shot needed to complete a portrait of a squirrel and whoops! the whole piece is shot (no pun intended). Walton, a Birmingham, Alabama-based artist, shoots holes in sheets of aluminum at point-blank range (and with impeccable accuracy, I might add) to create pointillism-like portraits of animals.
