Charlie Masson is a Chicago-based artist who has created a new series of paintings all using the delicate medium of bubble wrap. This bubble wrap art is very reminiscent of the pop art of the 60s; however, Masson’s paintings take pop to a whole other dimension by using the groves and bumps of the bubble wrap to give new dimension to each piece.
