Max Zorn - Canvas Prints
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 first works made were placed in the public space, namely the Amsterdam lanterns. The works were attached to the top of the lantern which in the evening, when the street lamps were lit, the image appeared. Max Zorn’s settings and themes are influenced by film noir while brown shades and different layers of tape create a sepia tone. Max Zorn says he also finds inspiration from characters in novels produced by writers from The Lost Generation specifically Hemingway, Steinbeck, and Salinger. His work also is influenced by American realism artists such as Edward Hopper.
