Remember those old floppy disks from the 1980s and 90s? Nick Gentry creates the most stunning portraits by using old diskettes as his canvas. He also uses film negatives, x-rays and other unusual elements for his creative pieces.

This 34 year old artist from London prefers to use previously owned materials, usually donated by people from all over the world, to create his work and states that "the life and personality of these objects are a big part of each artwork". He uses as little as one disk or hundreds of them to create big portraits in an impressive mosaic style.
