Not everyone may agree, but it's all part of a new arts project in Wakefield, as Sarah Clark reports.
They say an artist has to suffer for his work. Leeds-born artist Marcus Levine has had more than a share of injuries as he creates portraits of the rich and famous, works of art which have been snapped up across the globe.
It's because Marcus, who trained at the former Jacob Kramer Art College in with fellow local Damian Hirst, creates his works using a simple hammer and nails.
Today he is presenting hard as nails ex-Leeds United player turned actor Vinnie Jones with a self-portrait made with a stack of nails.
Marcus, who attended school at Fulneck in Pudsey, created the work at his studio in Bingley. The 80cm x 60cm portrait took two weeks to make.
A group of schoolchildren from Sheffield have created a decorative bench from a tree which had to be chopped down because it was damaging pavements. The pupils at Anns Grove Primary School teamed up with chainsaw sculptor Lorraine Botterill to transform the trunk. It was part of Sheffield's Big Boulder Music and Arts Festival. The bench now sits in Heeley Park, where the festival took place, as a lasting memento of the tree and for local people to admire and enjoy.
