Mark Khaisman Crée de belles peintures avec du ruban d'emballage

Philadelphia-based Mark Khaisam used to work on stained-glass windows, before discovering the packaging tape, and though the two art forms seem unrelated, the artist says they are just different ways of painting with light. As he uses up to ten layers of tape for the darkest spots on his paintings, Mr. Khaisam needs around three 100-meter packaging tape rolls per week, to complete his artworks.

The artist doesn’t sketch out the images first, as you might imagine, he simply works with stills from his favorite films, increases them to actual size, then starts adding pieces of packaging tape directly on the light boxes. Using different number of layers to create darker areas and shadows, and thinner pieces of tape to achieve brush strokes, Mark Khaisman manages to create detailed paintings that look amazingly loose.

“Face Up” to the Joys of Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils

Shelley was so inspired that she wanted to try her hand at Picasso’s famous style and shared her process with us! See she tackled Picasso and the joy of working with Watercolor Colored Pencils! Picasso was an amazing artist whose work spanned over seven decades. His art included drawing, painting and sculpting, often depicting images of women. His passion and willingness to bend and break the “classical rules” of art often made his works controversial, and some of his works in the Cubist style seemed very abstract in their approach.

After going through the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, Spain, I wanted to try my hand at drawing a face, in the manner of Picasso, using the Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils. Materials Needed: Step 1.

Chances are when viewing these you fall firmly into one of two camps: the highly amused or the highly disturbed. Regardless, it’s hard to deny the incredible amount of labor that goes into each piece, from the exploration of form and the use of color to make each anatomical amalgamation. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa and raised in West Sydney, Jobbins is influenced in part by Guiseppe Archimboldo’s fruit and vegetable paintings as well as Ron Mueck’s oversized humans.
