Happy new year to everyone we didn’t celebrate with at NYE MASSIVE! We are back to business here at TICT, and would like to draw your attention to the young and talented Dutch street-artist, Max Zorn. Zorn constructs photo-realistic portraits using only brown packing paper and a scalpel, sticking them on Plexiglas panels and hanging them on street lamps in public places (these artworks rely on backlighting to distinguish the different shades of the brown tone). His carving and layering technique is phenomenal, crafting geometric shapes and sharp streaks of multi-, sepia-toned shades out of this sticky material is just crazy!
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. During the last years that kind of tape-art also conquered the streets as a new form of urban art. However, it is widely practised by using colored tape on walls or streets.
