Cute and Creative Cassette Tape Art


Paris, France-based artist Benoit Jammes wrote to us to tell us about his cute and creative series involving cassette tapes.

As an homage to those long gone decades, Jammes has created a lighthearted series that shows what can happen if you transform those plastic shells into everything from pop culture characters to fruit!

While at first glance, these artworks look like they’ve been created in Photoshop or Illustrator, you’d be delighted to find out that they’re all completely handmade.
