French painter and sculptor Bapticte Debonmourg creates his masterpieces on white canvases. Only, instead of paints he uses staples, and instead of a brush he uses a stapler. One of his works can contain more than 30,000 staples.
The creation of one such “painting” requires a minimum of 70 hours of time. The author isn’t limited to staples, but today we will talk about his series of works, made with the stapler, called Aggravure. Baptiste calls himself a sculptor, although his works are very hard to distinguish from classical paintings. He says that this series was inspired by the works of Italian Mannerist artists such as Bronzino, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, Alessandro Allori and others.
