Mark Langan - Corrugated Paper Art

I keep a long list of potential blog post topics... it never fails to amaze me how many wonderful paper related sites there are and people I'd love to showcase. Today's featured artist, Mark Langan of Ohio, has been on my radar for quite some time. His work is pretty darn incredible, so let's take a look.

Since 2004, Mark has been reusing ordinary cardboard, otherwise destined for the recycling bin, to make beautifully effective wall decor.

He uses nothing more than corrugated boxes, non-toxic glue, a razor knife, cutting edge, and mat. Needless to say, plenty of artistic talent is also required.

Here he's recreated Edvard Munch's Scream with fine detail.

It's no surprise Mark's work is sought after by companies that play a role in packaging, cardboard and paper manufacturing, as well as recycling and green industries.

His work is placed in lobbies and boardrooms, and sometimes he recreates company logos in cardboard.

Take a moment to visit Mark's art galleries - there are many fascinating works to see.
