Quirky Paper Portraits by Set Designer Adriana Napolitano

Quirky Paper Portraits by Adriana Napolitano - August

Italian designer and photographer Adriana Napolitano’s love for paper is immense and shines through with her incredible set designs completely made of paper. These paper portraits all have various themes, some featuring Adriana herself in several calendar settings, such as the giant wave pictured above, to a gentleman in the full blue luchador costume, to her and her good friend Linus as twinsies!

All in all each character that is portrayed, whether her or her subjects, are ultimately covered in or representing paper in some way. My particular fave happens to be the chef attempting to tame his dinner, hehe. The amount of work that she places into creating each of these paper scenarios alone may seem a bit daunting to some, but Napolitano shows loving effort by building all of the costumes, props and sets for her paper portraits and self-portraits herself. She clearly takes pride in this infinitely malleable medium that we all know and love, paper!
