This Guy Took Out Some Packing Tape And Turned It Into Unbelievable Art

NOVEMBER 20, 2016  —  By Hannah Austin

In 2009, Max Zorn had a radical idea for a new kind of street art. The project was called "Stick Together," and for it to work, he would need the public's help.

Using just packing tape and a scalpel, Zorn began to create sticker art to be displayed on streetlamps around the world. Through his website, he distributed them to friends and strangers alike. Soon, pictures of his art began flooding in.

The guerrilla street art initiative began to pop up on streetlights around the world. This Ernest Hemingway sticker was photographed in Key West, Florida.

And this Marilyn Monroe was seen in Berlin, Germany. Incredibly, Zorn made each and every one by hand using nothing more than regular packing tape and a scalpel.

To hang the art, Zorn and others had to shimmy up a streetlight without attracting the attention of authorities.

Today, the process looks quite a bit different!


Zorn now creates all types of large and small-scale pieces. Some are hung in galleries, while others are for sale on his website.

However, Zorn hasn't abandoned his roots. He's still using nothing but packing tape to create his art.

Whether the finished product is a lifelike portrait or stunning cityscape, the passion of the artist shines through.

Recently, Zorn's started to experiment with colored tape. There's no telling what he'll come up with next!

To learn more about Zorn and his process, check out the video below. Seeing his work come together is absolutely mind-boggling.
