It's hard to believe that these artistic wall drawings are actually masking tape design patterns. Highly talented artist Sun K. Kwak makes the tape melt off the walls and swirl around the gallery in an expressively undulating fluid-like installation.

Hints of street art elements are apparent in these decorative designs, with stark black and white contrasts resulting in an inky series, like a tattoo parlor met with a tsunami to create this artwork. Covering the walls with black masking tape is the first part of the artist's process, followed by an utility knife, which is used to cut out tendrils and waves within the adhesive.

A great draw for the masking tape design artwork is its clean application and bold look. Stats for Astounding Adhesive Murals Trending: Older & Mild
