The Man Who Paints with Packing Tape


Scour the internet long enough and you’ll feel like there’s nothing you haven’t already seen. And yet, there’s always something that comes along that makes you throw your arms up in disbelief. So with that in mind, let’s meet the latest from that arm-throwing tradition.

Recently making a reemergence online are these elaborate paintings of 1950s New York City. They come from artist Max Zorn, whose canvas is nothing but a backlit board, and his tools just rolls of packing tape and an Exacto knife. That’s it. This video highlights his creative process from start to finish.

Moving anytime soon? Maybe consider buying an extra roll of packing tape. Better yet, we bet you could make something pretty cool out of a few hundred levels.
