Edgar Allan Poe Made with 7,000 Worms by Phil Hansen
Artist Phil Hansen (who probably is the first one created artwork on banana skin) recently created a portrait of Edgar Allan Poe, but as most of his work, it wasn’t just any ordinary portrait. Why? Because it was made out of 7,000 live worms. Seriously! I am not kidding! It took Phil Hansen a total of 60 hours of work to create and the final image was about 8 x 8 feet.
I know some of you might think it was gross (including me). How can someone paint with worm? Live worm! Constantly moving worm! I have to admit, Phil Hansen can always break the limits and suprise me once and once again. Now, enough talking and let’s witness the amazing worm portrait of Edgar Allan Poe.
We include the action video at the end, so if you are a bit scared of those wiggling creatures, you can skip the movie and just look at below photos. Of course, if you want to see more of Hansen’s crazy/creative works, you can follow him on youtube or visit his site!
