Mark Khaisman is an artist originally for Kiev Ukraine that now lives in Philadelphia creating innovative art works for Parcel tape on clear plastic so that when a light it shone from behind the piece it shows the layers as different shades to it. On top of the tape he then paints in the finer details to create a unique effect.
Without the light box these works look plain and somewhat strange but add the light and they completely change.
“It has nothing to do with love, nothing at all” is a good explain of how he uses the tape to portray depth and shining light. The figures have a nice movement and emotion to them even though there are no faces.
The way the tape is laid give the effect of fast motion in “You are Nobody but A Escaped Convict” this art style proves that art can be created with pretty much anything with enough though a ingenuity into it, and as a medium I actually rather like but I imagination it would take a while to perfect but it think I will give it a go at some point just to see what I can do with it. I imagination that architecture would work rather well something with plenty of angles and hard edges.
