Max Zorn adorns street lights in Europe

Filed under: Art by Orangemaster @ 6:55 pm

An anonymous artist who calls himself Max Zorn has started to enliven the streets of Amsterdam, Berlin, Lisbon and other European cities with paintings made of tape stuck to street lights.

The artist explains:

The idea to work with tape instead of paint was inspired by a friend who worked as a car designer at that time. These guys often use slim tapes to outline their ideas on large boards. I was surprised to see how fast they could create stunning sketches with it. During the last years that kind of tape art also conquered the streets as a new form of urban art. However, it is widely practised by using colored tape on walls or streets.

The idea to use light as a medium was born during a nightly run through Amterdam. The nice old street lamps with their golden light seemed perfect to be used as an open gallery for the first test of my modified tape art.

You can help by applying for a piece a art that you can then attach to a street light in your own town.
