Ghosts in the machine...



The Beatles..

The Clash..

Tom Waits..

Bettie Page..

This post was going to be all about the amazing art created by iri5 over on Flickr, made with cassette tape and 16mm film on canvas.

But then there was Monet's portrait from his Woman with Umbrella, cut and rearranged..

Or Salvadore Dali, drawn from his own surrealism..

Mohammad Ali depicted through his own life..

If you click over to his Flickr site, you can even see a step by step in progress of Oscar Wilde from his own Portrait of Dorian Gray. Seriously, the artist is TALENTED.
