About The Artist - Tape Deck Art

Tony Dennis aka Tape Deck Art is a self-taunt British contemporary artist with a passion for music and design who paints and creates giant ticket stubs and giant pin badges. In the early part of 2016 Tony craved to design and paint a piece of artwork that was eye catching, tactile and totally different. At the same time, he was collecting vintage punk badges from the mid to late 1970’s. He put the two together and came up with the idea of painting and forming Giant 3D pin badges from designs he already had in his collection.

After nearly 9 months of research and fabricating countless prototypes, Tony painted his first badge in early 2017 and has since exhibited his artwork in London. All Tonys badge design’s are taken from actual pins from the 1970’s to the 1980’s with a heavy influence on the punk scene, painting a number of badges from designs manufactured by Better Badges from the years 1976-84. More recently, in 2018, Tony has been collaborating with French graffiti artist Invader and has produced 10 giant pin badges using the artists designs.
