Incredible Staple Art by Baptiste Debombourg

Like Ran Hwang's beautiful murals, Baptiste Debombourg's creates incredibly detailed art that can only be fully appreciated up close. Using just a white wall as his backdrop, Debombourg carefully placed 35,000 staples over a period of 75 hours to create two pieces of art. These are titled Air Force One and Air Force Two.

Notice how these beings are flying straight down towards the earth. Debombourg wanted to play with the idea of contemporary aggression. He cites Italian Mannerism artists as his inspiration.
