Andrew Myers Creates A Portrait Using Suspended Painted Cubes

Artist Andrew Myers has created “My Dealer Is Not A Square,” a portrait of his art dealer Lawrence Cantor, that took 7 months to create from concept to finish.


“I stared thinking about a single pixel. A lot of people have done art with pixels but I have never seen a sculpture where each pixel floats in its own space and still creates one image.”, says Andrew Myers.

“The concept began as a sculpture that would float directly off the wall but turned out to be more of a chandelier looking sculpture.”

“We started by ordering thousands of cubes to figure out how this would come together. There was a lot of research on the hanging system and what kind of stainless steel rods to use. Once we did the math, we were quite surprised to realize we would be using over 800 yards of stainless steel wire.”

“Once the materials were purchased and figured out the math, we created a series of Jigs to organize each step of the process and make sure there would be no surprises.”

“Once the cubes had been drilled, the rods cut to length and the steel hanging system designed we proceeded to hand mix and match 1200 individual colors that would then be applied to each cube.”

“It was quite a stressful project as we knew that it would work in theory but wouldn’t know how well until it was completely put together.”
