'The Scream' In Cardboard

Mark Langan from Ohio, USA spent over 90 hours to create his finely detailed, 3-dimensional take on the 1910 version of Edvard Munch’s familiar painting.

He used a craft knife to cut up 30 square feet of cardboard taken from five boxes and layered them to create a three-dimensional image. Remaining scraps of corrugated cardboard were put through a heavy duty paper shredder and mixed with glue to create a pulp. Mark smeared this onto the cardboard and used his fingers to add detail to the picture, which measures 2.25 inches deep and sold for £1,600.
He creates work primarily from cardboard after a medical condition in his wrist made it difficult to hold a pen or paintbrush.
