Spotlight: Sticking tape

This month’s brief Spotlight is about sticking tape.  It holds things together.  Or it masks edges, if you want to paint some gloss over a window frame.  Tape art.
Max Zorn creates images with sticking tape.
He started by putting tape on street lights.
It evolved.
Max is now well sought-after, with about 18 months’ wait for commissions.
Ok, the stuff is tacky, but lots of people love it.  And it probably says something, if that matters.
Max Zorn is based in Amsterdam.  He has exhibited in the UK, in 2017 and 2016, at The Old Truman Brewery in East London (I had a piece up in a record store round the corner from there last year!).  Mainly he exhibits in Germany and USA.
Many artists, particularly from the Netherlands, have been reticent about UK appearances since 2016.  Around June 23rd, 2016.
It might be nice to stick together.
Tape.
