Mark Khaisman

is a Russian figurative artist. He uses packing tape to create portraits and occasionally images of various objects. He studied at Moscow Architectural Institute, Moscow, Russia.

“My works are pictorial illusions formed by light and shadow. Tape allows for images that communicate what I’m interested to do in a very direct way. My medium consists of three elements: translucent packing tape, clear acrylic or film panels, and light. By superimposing layers of translucent tape, I play on degrees of opacity that produces transparencies highlighted by the color, shading, and embossment. There are some qualities of tape that make it unique for me as an art material: its banality, humbleness and its “throwaway” nature; its default settings of color and width; its unforgiving translucency; the cold and impersonal attitude that tape surface suggests.”—Mark Khaisman
