This series aims to integrate human identity with technology

Paintings can be created on almost any canvas - whether it's your usual paper art or something else entirely. London artist Nick Gentry is fascinated with obsolete technology such as film negatives and floppy disks, and this project is a perfect example of what happens when technology and art collide.

Using floppy disks as a canvas, this series of paintings aim to showcase how the human identity integrates with technology. The character portraits are eerily robotic - reminding us of the replicants from Blade Runner.

Posing questions throughout the paintings, this is the kind of art that will stick in your mind long after you've seen it.
