Portraits Of Icons Created From Postage Stamps

Portraits Of Icons Created From Postage Stamps
Pete Mason, or the 'Post Pop Art Man' as he calls himself, is one artist who'll surely gain your stamp of approval with his artwork made out of recycled postage stamps, using the stamps' colors and designs to contribute to richly evocative portraits. Each artwork is made of thousands of used postage stamps, from 3,500 for a typical 4’ x 3’ canvas to 22,000 for the larger pieces.
