Not all artists need to create every element for their artwork. Take for example Mark Khaisman, a Ukraine-born artist who can take an everyday object like a simple brown packing tape and turn it into something that’s truly a work of art.
Mark’s choice of canvas is Plexiglass which he covers with layers of packing tape. Each strip overlaps with another to create depth and texture. A finished product may not look much, but once light is added from behind the glass, his pieces glow to become eye-catching artworks that truly impress. From old Hollywood greats like James Dean and Audrey Hepburn sharing a laugh to a kissing scene from a James Bond movie, Khaisma’s play on light and shadow creates a gratifying replica of each subject and scenario.
