Fantastic Floppy Disk Portraits


British graduate of Central St. Martins Nick Gentry really knows how to think outside the box! Gentry paints his portraits not on a traditional canvas, but rather on old floppy disks. Like many of us, he grew up with these near obsolete mediums - floppy disks, VHS tapes, polaroids and cassettes. His art delves into what kind of impact the new internet culture has on all of us.

Gentry’s work is a comment on waste culture, life cycles and identity. “Using old disks as a canvas,” shares Gentry “these artifacts are combined to create photo-fits and identities that may draw connections to the personal information that is then forever locked down underneath the paint.”
