Philadelphia based artist, Mark Khaisman, has made quite the name for himself in the world of packing tape. After 7 successful moves in the past year and a half, I thought I was the expert on this sort of thing, but Khaisman, has taken things to the next level. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Khaisman eventually went on to study art and architecture in Moscow. Now, he keeps more than busy with his incredibly unique tape installations. Although, Mark Khaisman uses neither paint nor a brush, her refers to his works as "paintings", applying up to ten layers of packing tape with the idea of a brush stroke in mind. In order to achieve this type of see-through sepia look, tape is mounted directly to an acrylic panel then backlit. Typically, Khaisman replicates scenes from his favorite movies, but has also branched out to the art of portraiture with more contemporary subjects.
And who said packing wasn't fun???
