Bubble Wrap Portraits: Pop Art, Literally.

by Hazel Chua

Some people relieve their stress by popping bubble wrap. Others exercise their creativity and showcase their talent by creating portraits using bubble wrap. And by ‘others’, we mean artist Bradley Hart.

He probably had to buy rolls and rolls of the stuff and he clearly spent a lot of time working on his project. But I think his efforts paid off, because just take a look at what he made. This here is a bubble wrap portrait of Steve Jobs.

Not that you needed me to tell you, because you were probably able to recognize him on your own.

What Bradley did was fill syringes with certain colors of acrylic paint. He then painstakingly injected different colored paint into various bubbles on the huge sheet of bubble wrap to create his unique portraits.

Pixels on computer screens store our memories with social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The process of injecting bubble wrap with paint in order to create one coherent picture, references pixilation as a combination of 1’s and 0’s that result in an image for us to consume.

Bradley’s What? Where? When? Why? How? series of bubble wrap portraits will be on display at New York’s gallery nine5 until March 26, 2013. Do drop by if you’re in the area.
