David Mach Uses Matchsticks To Create Bold Colored Portraits

David Mach creates sculptures using a wide variety of materials from coat hangers to collaged paper but his bold portraits made out of thousands of matchsticks are some of my favorites. Gluing tens of thousands of matchsticks together, Mach (appropriate last name huh?) uses matches with various colored tips to create the realistic heads that have a psychedelic meets tribal art feel to them.

    Great idea! I guess he is doing clay sculptures first and then clues the matches to it.
