In a series by Allan Rubin called CANON, famous artists are rendered not on canvas, but on tin cans. The hilarious medium lends the artwork a lumpy yet agreeable look, and it’s clear that Rubin spent significant time molding, shaping, and sculpting the cans into recognizable figures.
Rubin describes some of his working styles:
“Cookie tins sometimes make good torsos,” he told Hyperallergic. “Bean cans are just right for arms and necks. Sardine cans make great hands. Lids have rings embossed on them that work perfectly for ears, and also become noses that I have learned to bend, slot, and tab onto the faces.”
