Artist creates nude portraits with wine corks

Artist Conrad Engelhardt has created a series of racy portraits using old wine corks donated by London restaurants.

Cork portrait Conrad EngelhardtEach portrait uses between 2,000 and 5,000 corks and Engelhardt also uses staples to arrange the corks on artist boards.

Engelhardt told the Daily Mail: “My wife and I have always enjoyed drinking wine, and collected corks for years.

“We amassed quite a few and they started to take up space, so I thought that I should make something with them.”

After realising that he would need a lot more corks to carry on with his portraits Engelhardt decided to approach some restaurants, and now he has 11 restaurants donating to his collection.

Take a look through some of the portraits that Engelhardt has created.
