Bubble wrap art gives a pop to traditional portraits

There are so many unique forms of art out there and we've covered some pretty interesting examples here on DVICE, but never before have we seen portraits made out of bubble wrap. At least, not until now.

Artist Bradley Hart has taken advantage of bubble wrap in his most recent collection of work. These dotted portraits center around a concept that has grown in popularity over time: using found or discarded objects that aren't considered "traditional" as art mediums. So, Hart painstakingly used syringes to inject acrylic paint inside each individual bubble wrap bubble.  Eventually, his efforts took shape and turned into remarkably lifelike faces.

His exhibit What? Where? When? Why? How? will be on display at New York's gallery nine5 through March 26. We like their interpretation of Hart's work:

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.
