Packaging Tape Portraits

Packing Tape Art

Packing tape is skillfully placed to create amazing art collages. Using variations in tape opacity and positioning to create realistic shadows and depth. Look closely and see that the artist, Olivier Poujol Molliens, is using the same material we put to work sealing corrugated boxes.

This packaging tape portrait really STICKS in your mind.

The Big Bad Wolf might have second thoughts about messing with this portrait of “Red”.

Mr. Molliens was born in France but now resides in Morocco. This provides him both with the inspiration for his portraits and his medium. Oliver was taken aback by the cardboard boxes and packaging tape piled everywhere. Being keenly observant he soon discovered that Moroccans reuse almost everything. He transformed, what is normally waste into art. Tones, colors, shapes and emotions are achieved from simple material like the packaging tape, which never ceases to surprise him.
