As if the cobbled lanes and canal lined streets of Amsterdam needed any more romance injected into them, along comes street artist Max Zorn. With some humble PVC plastic sheets covered in sliced and layered packing tape, he is creating emotive and dreamy portraits laced with the mystique of years gone by.

Whether it’s an urban twist on the classic, Girl with a Pearl Earring, or a Casablanca-esque tender moment between lovers, Zorn’s ‘tape art’ can be found creating silhouettes from street lamps around the city.
