Mark Khaisman - Tape it up....

I have been following the sculptural tape trend that a lot of my friends are trying, and have been having a good time with it. However, today, I stumbled upon a new use for regular packing tape that blew me away! Check out these amazing works crafted from packing tape by Ukraine born, Philadelphia-based artist,
Mark Khaisman These large archetypal images are made from layer upon layer of translucent packing tape, applied to plexiglass and then placed in front of a light box to give the image shadow and depth. Mark is inspired by people, places and things which have a classic style to them. he believes that reinterpreting these classics, using his medium and method, transforms these iconic figures and objects into a remarkable personal experience for the viewer.
