i love featuring talented artists on my blog, and today i introduce you to:
French artist Benoit Jammes, who transforms recycled audio cassette tapes into the most beautiful and creative works of art.
Now this is called seeing ordinary things from artistic perspective.
“This work on cassette tapes is entirely handmade, with a bit of work but so nostalgia… It so happened that I found a bunch of old cassettes at home; seeing them brought me back, in thought, to an earlier time, the 80s, and to me as a kid. In any case, I could not play them any more so resurrecting them sounded like a good idea…it was sound, it became visual! And I am pretty sure they are more happy now than in a shoebox “
“I think people from my generation relate to this work because many enjoy the funny side of it, the references. They are happy to see that these old cassette tapes managed to start a new life!” – Benoit Jammes.
Signed and numbered prints are available for sale.

The Japanese brand Kokeshi offers some ultra-cute matchboxes created by artist Kumi Hirasaka, where the end of each match is decorated with a small face, head of chick or dog, panda, rabbit and so on… The problem with this kawaii Japanese gadget is to find the courage to scratch one!
