Gorgeous Mosaic Portraits Made of Pushpins

Mosaics always offer a visual treat, and artist Eric Daigh adds a new spin by taking everyday office supplies — multicolored pushpins — to new heights with his collection of portraits. But while the images themselves are colorful and playful, the subjects depicted are not. “My subjects are imprisoned, diluted, marginalized,” Daigh says (via Faith is Torment).  “Their escape, however, is imminent. Whether a symptom of corporate and social homogenization, or the four base pairs of DNA, we are products of just a small handful of variables. In five colors of plastic, you can be reproduced.”
