Pete Mason - The Post Pop Art Man

Kate Middleton and Prince William

British artist Pete Mason aka The Post Pop Art Man creates these pixellated images from thousands of recyled postage stamps.
Each stamp has to be soaked to remove the envelope backing, dried and sorted into colours and then individually glued in place. The stamps are obtained from several different sources, friends, colleagues, students and family contribute but most are obtained from COURT PHILATELICS in Leighton Buzzard who are happy to supply those interested in the creative use of postage stamps.

Sir Richard Branson

Sir Cliff Richard

Margaret Thatcher

Nelson Mandela

The Queen

Princess Diana

Martin Luther King
