With a surgeon’s scalpel for a brush, Max Zorn is a ‘tape artist’ who uses common brown packing tape as his medium. Zorn shapes layers upon layers of tape onto acrylic glass that, when illuminated from behind, reveal a contrast and warmth that has captured the art world.
Based in Amsterdam, Max Zorn emerged as an urban artist in 2011 when he began applying his tape art to street lamps. Using the night as his setting, Zorn has gone on to adorn the street lamps of London, Lisbon, Madrid, Berlin and beyond.
His iconic style ranges from shimmering skyscrapers and golden age Americana to grandiose European charm set between lines of decadence and disillusion.
