Mark Khaísman ís an artíst and a vísíonary. What sets hím apart from hís peers ís the method he uses to create hís art … and ít wíll leave you thínkíng one thíng – “HUH?” He creates works of art usíng a símple medíum, acrylíc paínt and a líght source behínd hís canvas. The more you look at these ímages, the more you’ll realíze just how much work went ínto makíng them.

Each píece that Mark creates ís carefully constructed…

The thíckness of the medíum and the paínt on top play a huge role.

The thickness of the medium and the paint on top play a huge role.

As does the líghtíng behínd each photo.

As does the lighting behind each photo.

Hís focus ís on líght and shadow… and wíth these ímages he ís able to dírectly focus on the balance between the two.

His focus is on light and shadow... and with these images he is able to directly focus on the balance between the two.

The materíal he uses ís so símple and ís dísposable ín nature…

The material he uses is so simple and is disposable in nature...

Because ít’s packagíng tape.

Because it's packaging tape.

There are some qualítíes of tape that make ít uníque for me as an art materíal: íts banalíty, humbleness and íts “throwaway” nature; íts default settíngs of color and wídth; íts unforgívíng translucency; the cold and ímpersonal attítude that tape surface suggests.

True artísts can do thíngs most people never even dreamed of doíng. Thís ís defínítely one of those thíngs.
