In Pictures: a tape art exhibition has opened at a gallery in Berlin
If you've seen enough spray paint-based street art for one lifetime, it may be time to check out tape art. An exhibition featuring works in the medium are currently on display as part of the Tape Art Convention 2016 in Berlin.
The convention is described as a “joint exhibition of internationally renowned tape artists, showcasing the diversity of this increasingly influential urban art form for the first time”.
Tape art is created with different colours and sizes of adhesive tape.
Packing tape and duct tape are used as an alternative to spray paint, as the artworks can be created silently.
The exhibition will also feature live tapings outside to show people how it’s done, and guests can try out tape art for themselves in a section of the gallery.
The exhibition launched this weekend and is open until 5 November at the Neurotitan Gallery near Hackescher Markt.
