Max Zorn is a Dutch artist who has been active in street art at night and urban art since May 2011. His style is notable for its use of brown packing tape as a medium and cutting on acrylic glass with a scalpel to create portraits that need lighting from behind to be seen.
“The artist has to be something like a whale swimming with his mouth wide open, absorbing everything until he has what he really needs.” — Romare Bearden
In 2016: In collaboration with Scotch Tape, Max Zorn creates the largest outdoor tape art installation ever made out of brown packing tape. It’s a 40-square-foot freestanding illuminated artwork titled “Huckleberry” for the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.
