Welcome to the World of Tape Art
Tape art commissions, installations and live creations by Max Zorn
Max Zorn is an artist who uses ordinary brown packing tape as his medium and a scalpel as a brush. Based in Amsterdam, Max Zorn shapes layers upon layers of tape on acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind, reveal contrasts and warmth that has stunned the art world.
The freehand craftwork and vividness of his sepia toned creations, straight lines and sharp subjects give Max Zorn’s settings a pure and believable depth. His characters are depicted like a James Ellroy novel, revealing the menace in the shadow and an indefinite fragility behind the nostalgic glamor days.
Max Zorn’s iconic style ranges from his shimmering skyscrapers and Americana to grandiose European charm set between lines of decadence and disillusion. With his unmistakable way to compose cinematic settings, Max Zorn pulls spectator into his motifs and encourages his audience to continue his story.
