Artist Creates Images Using Only Duct Tape

Vince Ricottilli creates various images with duct tape, drawing inspiration from old cartoons and his favorite movies.

Said Ricottilli, “Basically what I do is I find a picture I like off the internet, and I make it out of duct tape. First, if the picture isn’t already in black and white I make it so. Sometimes the picture is in black, white and gray depending on the amount of detail in the picture.”

“Then I put down three layers of duct tape (black, white and gray) on some cardboard and use a xacto knife to trace the picture. Depending on the picture it takes me about 7-10 hours per piece, but I rarely do it all in one sitting.”
