In 2011 Max Zorn emerged as an urban artist who hung tape art on street lamps. Using the night as his setting and sepia-toned tape as his medium on acrylic glass, his work dotted the street lamps of many European capitals like London, Madrid,    Lisbon, and Berlin.

In an impressively short timeline, Max Zorn’s tape art has seen opportunity and worldwide demand at an accelerating speed. His work has since evolved into solo exhibitions worldwide from London to New York, with an international resume spanning from Art Basel in Hong Kong to Singa- pore and national museums from Amsterdam to Vancouver and Japan. His work has caught the at- tention of CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera and Deutsche Welle to name a few.

The freehand craftwork and vividness of his sepia toned creations, straight lines and sharp subjects give Max Zorn’s settings a pure and believable depth. His characters are depicted like a James Ellroy novel, revealing the menace in the shadow and an indefinite fragility behind the nostalgic glamor days.

 Max Zorn’s iconic style ranges from his shimmering skyscrapers and Americana to grandiose European charm set between lines of decadence and disillusion. With his unmistakable way to compose cinematic settings, Max Zorn pulls spectator into his motifs and encourages his audience to continue his story.
