Bullet hole artwork


Guns aren’t only used for self defense and hunting, they can be used to make works of art. Thats what artist Walton Creel does with his .22lr rifle. Creel created images of animals for his ‘Deweaponizing the Gun’ series of artwork. He fired thousands of rounds into a canvas made out of aluminum to make his masterpieces. Each .22 caliber hole was a single pixel in his image, Creel says of his new artwork:

“My main goal was to take the destructive power away from the gun. To manipulate the gun into a tool of creation and use it in a way that removed it from its original purpose, to deweaponize it.”
