Artist Creates Beautiful Art Using Nothing But Packing Tape

posted on December 24th 2013 in Arts & Inspiration & Photography & Sculpture with 0 Comments

Ukraine-born artist Mark Khaisman creates truly outstanding art using a really mundane material – brown packaging tape. By putting various layers of translucent tape onto Plexiglass and then cutting it into certain shapes, the artist remakes scenes from old Hollywood movies, art history, certain 20th century cultural icons or his own photographs.

The Plexiglass that the brown tape pictures are placed on is also used as a light medium. Light, the final part of Khaisman’s artwork, passes from behind the images to illuminate the multiple layers of tape, allowing them to interact with each other and create a gorgeous glowing effect. The final image makes you appreciate brown tape a lot more, as it creates a stunning sepia effect that makes the images seem nostalgic. Brown packaging tape art is not an entirely new discovery – we wrote earlier this year about Dutch-born artist Max Zorn.This only casts Khaisman’s scrupulous and eye-catching artworks in a new light and makes you wonder – could this be a new movement in the art world?
