Masking Tape Flowers!


You may have heard of origami, but have you heard of Tapigami? Tapigami (tap-i-gami) is a word coined by American artist, Danny Scheible, to define the original artform of origami with masking tape. Instead of using sheets of paper, Danny uses the sticky adhesive, which he finds to be “versatile, accessible and malleable” to create his works of art.

Armed with rolls of masking tape and his imagination, he has created both large-scale art installations and smaller, more functional pieces, like lamps and hairpins. Each and every intricate piece is designed and handcrafted by the artist himself. He has created over 100 pieces in his Tapigami collection, with each one being finished with acrylic coating to extend the life.

Looking through his gallery, you can say he is inspired by flowers. He has created tapigami flower earrings, hairpins, lamps, and more! Here are some samples of his work:
