New Paper Bird Sculptures Juxtaposed With International Stamps by Diana Beltran Herrera

Paper Bird Sculptures Juxtaposed With International Stamps by Diana Beltran Herrera

Colombia-based artist Diana Beltran Herrera has always had an affinity towards birds and nature that stemmed from her childhood, however it wasn’t until the past few years that it started to prove prominent in her work. Previously, we have seen her paper birds in minimal form as well as full of color and life. These lifelike representations include an acute attention to detail and unbelievably are all crafted out of cut paper. This latest series incorporates a new set of beautiful birds from countries she has always admired, each captured within oversized postage stamps. Appropriately enough, it is National Bird Day!

“I always felt inspired by postage stamps as they are little windows of the world,” she tells Colossal, “specifically those that contain birds which are often traveling around the word. I have collected a few and I felt that I wanted to open those stamps to a much more realistic scale to learn more about that particular animal and its landscape.”
