Tape artist Toronto

Toronto artist crafts cityscapes out of tape

Local artists regularly reimagine Toronto using a variety of media. One, however, works with tape - yes, like duct tape - to stunningly depict different areas of the city.

Emanuel Pavao is one of the finalists in the Artist Project's Untapped Emerging Artists competition and he makes his locally focused pieces using all sorts of household tape, including duct, masking and electrical varieties.

At the tail end of last summer, he showed off his work as a participant at the 2015 Outdoor Art Exhibition , where he won the show's Best of Mixed Media award.

"I hope to push the limits of what is possible with this medium of tape and with myself," he writes on his website.

Check out some of his Toronto-centric pieces below.
