Whether he’s adding geometric texture to the side of a wall, representing figures from Roman mythology, or creating giant hands that appear to interact with the space around it, street artist Buff Diss takes a unique approach to his art by making the murals completely out of masking tape. The Australian artist uses the medium to create intricately graphic designs placed all through a city. He’s drawn to decorating the sides of derelict buildings, crumbling walls, and asphalt roads.
The murals seem to take on an ephemeral quality due to the fact that they’re made in masking tape. The piece could stay intact for years. Or it could be removed the next day by city officials and bystanders. Their apparent fragility is belied by their hard-edged aesthetic. [h/t mymodernmet.com]
