We’ve all seen mosaics, whether it be a colorful piece of wall art made from found objects, an intricate portrait made with stone, or just your kitchen tiles. But you have never seen mosaics like this. That Darth Vader mosaic? It is made using over ten thousand multi-colored staples. That takes dedication and patience. And amazing talent. And lots and lots of staples of course.
Painter and print maker James Haggerty’s art project called “The Side” features mosaics of Darth Vader, C-3PO and Greedo, all made of staples. Each mosaic measures about 40 inches x 32inches. The power of his stapler is impressive. Most impressive.
