Comments Off on Bradley Hart Creates Hyper-Realistic Portraits by Injecting Recycled Bubble Wrap with Paint

Where most people see packing material to be discarded after use, artist Bradley Hart  sees a blank canvas waiting to be filled with pops of color. The New York -based Toronto native has been creating astoundingly realistic portraits of celebrities and friends using bubble wrap injected with paint. Besides people, Hart also has depicted some of his favorite places, like a square in Amsterdam, and brought to life more abstract ideas. The painstaking process involves filling each tiny air-filled bubble with acrylic pigment, making it appear as if the finished product is made up of thousands of pixels. On average, it takes the artist about 150 hours to finish each of his works. But even before he approaches his unusual canvas, Hart spends two-three days loading the paint into the 1,200-1,500 syringes needed to complete a single creation. One of his most famous works to date depicts the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs . To complete the incredibly lifelike portrait, Hart injected over 16,000 individual bubbles with 89 different hues of paint to spectacular effect. + Bradley Hart Via Cybergazing The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
