Toronto-based artist Emanuel Pavao creates unique work out art using a medium very few have been successful with —duct tapes. Pavao uses duct tape, colored electrical tape and masking tape on canvas-board to create urban scenes, which he then seals with a clear epoxy resin.

"My interest in Tape Art was due in part to inspiration and the other part to frustration,” he says. “I was inspired by the realist works of such artists as Chuck Close, Richard Estes, Alex Colville and Eric Zener but I was also not satisfied working with the mediums of oil, acrylic and watercolours. The work that a few installation artists were doing with tape attracted me to it and I felt that there could be more to this medium as a fine art.”
