Razor Sharp Masterpieces


Artists think outside the box on multiple levels every time they complete a piece of work but Mark Langan has given a completely new meaning to the phrase, as hecreates artwork quite literally out of the box.  The 50 year old spends hours on end cutting, folding and gluing pieces of corrugated cardboard together in order to produce some of the worlds most environmentally friendly artwork pieces, recreating well known pieces such as Munch’s Scream, which he made out of somewhere in the realms of 2,000 individually cut pieces of cardboard box.  Each piece of work takes an average time of 120 hours and so far he has created 200 pieces to date.  Altough Langan is aware that his artwork is very low tech and it is in effect classed as “garbage art”, he is extremely particular about the brand of knife he uses in order to produce his masterpieces.  He likes to use non-toxic glue, a cutting mat, a steel rail, a ruler and an Olfa snap razor knife, which along with skill, planning, maths and patience are the keys to what is most definitely a spectacularly impressive portfolio.
