MARK KHAISMAN Art Source : Ba-bamail Music : Igor Krutoy Author : Beatrice Vaisman

Mark Khaisman (Ukrainian: Марк Хайсман, born 1958, Kyiv, Ukraine) is a Ukrainian-born visual artist who currently lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, having relocated to the United States in 1989. He creates his works by applying layers of translucent packaging tape on clear, backlit Plexiglas panels in order to create areas of light and shadow that, viewed as a whole, compose images of recognizable persons or objects. Khaisman's subject matter has come from various sources, including art history, old movies, 20th century propaganda art, and his own photographs. Khaisman was a practicing architect for two decades, working in the areas of architecture, animation, and stained glass design, before he began to exhibit his tape works in 2005. He was inspired to create works with packaging tape when he looked at a tape-covered stained glass work in progress and saw beauty in the patterns made by the tape. Since 2005, his work has been exhibited by a number of galleries, mostly located in Philadelphia or in nearby areas of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He has also exhibited in non-gallery spaces, including Philadelphia International Airport and the headquarters of Urban Outfitters. :
