Street Art Made of Tape from Buff Diss

Australian artist Buff Diss brings an interesting medium to the spray paint dominated world of street art: tape.  Intricately cut and stuck, Buff Diss’ often large scale pieces can be astoundingly complex.  Some of his work intentionally interacts, even plays with the surrounding environment.  At other times his work seems to reference classical sculpture and painting.  However, he consistently works in this peculiar medium.  Regarding the reasons for using tape in his process he says:

“The functional or practical nature of tape is one of its best aspects as a medium; you don’t have to walk into a snooty, over-priced art store to find it. The linear quality of tape also makes it a quick medium to work with. Only drawback is looking like you’ve got a stationery fetish when you open your bag.” [via]
