Wall Drawings with Tape

By Melissa Pierce Murray

In this session we used wide masking tape, paper and coloured markers to make large temporary wall drawings. The walls became immense extendable canvases and the studio a gallery space which we filled with dramatic and intimate artworks. Working this way allows you quickly create large compositions, by ‘drawing’ directly on the walls, and can be easily removed.

We could easily cover large areas of the wall using several methods:

  • creating coloured patterns on paper to cut out shapes and tape to the wall
  • sticking straight or curved lines of plain masking tape to the walls and then drawing directly on the tape
  • using coloured electrical tape, or string or scrunched paper to create different textures.
