Portraits from floppy disks by artist Nick Gentry: high tech can be beautiful

Portraits from floppy disks by artist Nick Gentry

All creative people are a little weird. Now they start to create paintings from products, then sculpt sculptures from garbage. English artist Nick Gentry decided to keep up with his colleagues and created a collection of portraits painted on floppy disks. Yes, yes, it was on those diskettes where not so long ago, mankind kept information. Today, technological progress has replaced plastic squares, replacing them with flash drives and disks. But, as you see, there was a use for floppy disks. More about this in our review.

So, back to our artist. Nick Gentry has long been famous for its unconventional approach to the issue of art. And I began to colorize floppy disks back in those days when they performed their direct function: they stored information. After the intervention of the English painter, they, among other things, began to store traces of paints.

Admittedly, over time, portraits from Nick Gentry floppy disks have become more ambitious and thought out. Now he not only paints plastic squares, but also collects collages from them.
For those who do not know how to draw, but want to find use for obsolete diskettes, we can advise turning them into tiles. And it looks unusual, and protects the working area from pollution.
