There’s one thing in common among almost all exhibits all over the world – they expressly prohibit anyone from touching the artwork. They even put up barriers and signs that loudly proclaim, “Please don’t touch the art!” In a way, it’s such a shame because art is more than just a visual medium. The emotion artwork evokes can be brought out with more than just the sense of sight.

Andrew Myers has found a way around this connundrum. He is an artist who wishes to bring the sense of touch back into the whole art experience. Using cleverly arranged screws, oil paint, charcoal, bronze, cement, and other found objects, he creates various stunning tactile paintings.

Here are some of his artworks.

But aside from creating art for the regular art lover, Myers also has a heartwarming motive in mind.

Myers has also created a portrait that specifically caters to those who can’t see. He has made a portrait of blind craftsman George Wurtzel from screws and paint. Wurtzel is a woodworking teacher whose students are primarily blind or have limited vision. Knowing Wurtzel’s desire to appreciate a portrait of himself, Myers created a 3D tactile painting of Wurtzel.

This inspired Cantor Fine Art to open a fully tactile exhibit, wherein guests can get up close and touch the artwork. The “Please Touch the Art” exhibit showcases the talents of 17 artist from all over the world, each using different mediums and subjects.

The “Please Touch the Art” exhibit is currently at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, California until August 31st.

So for those of you looking to literally feel the art, head on over to the Pacific Design Center where you can appreciate the artwork of Andrew Myers and various other artists.
