Impressive Tape Art by Max Zorn

tape-art-max-zorn-6

Amsterdam based artist Max Zorn creates his works with a unique media: packaging tape. By layering the translucent tape on plexiglass and cutting it with a scalpel, he creates remarkable tape pictures and is able to achieve various shades, hues and shadows through his work. Once completed, his work can often be seen hanging on the local Amsterdam street lamps. Lit up, it shines through the tape and manifests a beautiful image.

The idea came by accident to Max. He told the good people at Bored Panda this:

“The idea to work with tape instead of paint was inspired by a friend who worked as a car designer at that time. These guys often use slim tapes to outline their ideas on large boards. I was surprised to see, how fast they could create stunning sketches with it”
