Tape Art: Temporary Medium, Lasting Impression

Across the world artists create truly outstanding pieces using a fantastically mundane material: tape.

Tape on walls, tape on objects, tape on people. Artists across the world create truly outstanding pieces using a fantastically mundane material: tape. Originating in Providence, Rhode Island, tape art has become a genre all its own. It began as a clash between graffiti and traditional public art, and has since created a special place for itself as a temporary medium with a lasting impression.
