Mark Khaisman’s Stupendous Paintings Made Of Packaging Tape

Occasionally, we come up with the creative ideas of using usually day to day stuff to craft something worth applauding. Minute things which usually go unnoticed sometimes contribute in crafting stunning masterpieces. Remember the Peter Root’s Incredible City Made Up Of 100,000 Staples and Astonishing Toothpick Sculptures Created By Scott Weaver? Spectacular; weren’t they? Meet Mark Khaisman who using the packaging tapes crafts inimitable master pieces.
