views: 2343

Who thought that a sticky and ordinary brown packing tape can be used to create original and and amazing works of art?

Max Zorn is an Amsterdam-based street artist who became famous because of his rare talent in portraying faces, places, dramatic scenes using packing tape as his medium. He uses a scalpel in cutting the tapes on acrylic glass and puts lights behind to illuminate his masterpieces.

His fame began in 2011 when he made a 2-minute video entitled “Street Art by Max Zorn Making of Tape Art” and posted it on YouTube.

In the video, the beauty of his translucent tape arts shows when he hangs them on street lamps. His initial art works caught the attention of the national and international media, giving him inspiration to create 150 tape artworks in 2012.

"I didn't want to work on walls or on the floor I wanted to use street lamps as an urban gallery and I wanted to use the darkness as the setting around my artwork", he said in his speech about creating street art at the TEDx Talent Search.

Max is the founder and creator of Stick Together, an online project that spreads street art around the globe for free. The project conducts an annual painting session in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and is open to anyone for free.
