When one thinks of a celebrity portrait, typically what comes to mind is a sheet of canvas or sketch paper with a beautifully executed charcoal or pencil drawing. Instead, an unknown artist brings forth a series of cassette tape drawings similar to a previous series, but this time Michael Jackson, John Lennon, Lauryn Hill and others are depicted, further increasing the iconic nature of these drawings.

The artist demonstrates undeniable talent and delicate skill in assembling fine and finicky yards of cassette tape, effectively contouring hair, makeup, bone structure and the finest details like pursed lips. These art pieces are stunning in their own right and are yet another way to reinvent vintage technology as an art form.
