Max Zorn: art is mixing tape

Street art is evolving as fast as urban cultures. After the never ending fight between graffiti art (RobboWar) and new forms of street expressions, like stenciling (Bansky), now it’s time to experience different styles and materials.
Amsterdam based artist Max Zorn is able to create stunning works, using packing tape and a scalpel as his only tools. He actually uses only a single tape on a transparent surface (plexiglas), creating several layers – and so light effects – as he goes along.

Street art is evolving as fast as urban cultures. After the never ending fight between graffiti art (RobboWar) and new forms of street expressions, like stenciling (Bansky), now it’s time to experience different styles and materials. Amsterdam based artist Max Zorn is able to create stunning works, using packing tape and a scalpel as his only tools. He actually uses only a single tape on a transparent surface (plexiglas), creating several layers – and so light effects – as he goes along. He mainly creates impressive portraits of romantic and strong characters, with a bit of retro taste: boxers, lovers, dancers and some quotations from the past (Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring” in a modern key or Beatles members’ portraits). Being a street artist, Max Zorn installs this plexiglas panels on street lamps or public spaces. Once the lights are turned on, his sepia-toned graphic pictures seem to be self-glowing. To deepen the matter of tape artists, have also a look at the work of Ukrainian Mark Khaisman, Berlin based El Bocho and Australian Buff Diss.
