Tape Art Installation

Darel Carey, is a young craftsman and YouTuber renowned worldwide for his hyper-realistic achievements in the 2D technique and the quality of his wall taping. He experiments with several techniques: 2D painting being his most attractive one for the mass audience, and as you can see in this video he does a remarkable job at making an ordinary room into a ‘trippy’ masterpiece.

Using nothing more than thin black tape in combination with his keen observation and understanding the construction of a 2D drawing , dazzles us with this incredible 2D optical illusion illustration of a labyrinth. His fans often say he “destroys” his tape while drawing and the process shown above clearly supports their conclusion. He documented the entire process in this mesmerizing time-lapse video.

The hyperrealism of his models has led to his videos having millions of views and every time he invents a new design he makes his video tutorial go viral. Darel Carey creates line sequences in varied configurations in order to create an illusion of dimension that he calls “Dimensionalization”. Two dimensions can be perceived as three, and vice versa.
