Bradley Hart

 

 New York-based Canadian contemporary artist, best known for the photorealistic portraits that he creates by injecting paint into bubble wrap.

Hart works mainly with bubble wrap as his unique canvas and creative material. According to the artist, the idea of turning the commonly used packing plastic into art came from his encounter of overly protective museum security guards and a leftover roll of bubble from his first solo show in New York. Since then, Hart has developed "a conceptually complex and elaborate system that includes the perpetual invention of mechanized methods allowing for his art to spawn more art."
