Synopsis
The artist loved washi masking tape, so she uses it to create something unique and different. For 'Girl with a Pearl Earring' by Vermeer, she has used pink and flower-pattern tape to create a pretty picture quite different in tone from the original. It took her a week to complete da Vinci's 'The Last Supper.' There are many people in it, so it was difficult to capture each of their expressions.
