It's been a little while since we have had an interview grace Strictlypaper, and I am more than thrilled to share our interview and the incredible works of none other than Bristol based paper artist Sam Pierpoint. Her paper sculptures are astounding! The amount of detail that is carefully placed into each is truly unique. Sam also has an incredible range spanning advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays. We have already had the opportunity to see some of this range through her Christmas campaign for Bristol. All in all her works are well thought out visual masterpieces, so I implore you to enjoy this look into Sam Pierpoint.Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint seen first on on Strictlypaper
Toronto based studio Light + Paper run by Ali Harrison, has a focus on incredibly detailed reimagined cut paper designs of human organs. Each piece is first hand drawn and then hand-cut on white paper by freehand. Once complete, they hold organic patterns true to their origin. Her pieces take anywhere from 20-60 hours to complete... WOW! You can purchase any of her incredibly detailed works through her shop on Light + Paper, where she offers original hand-cut art pieces, as well as laser cut reproductions in both paper and wood.

Crystal Wagner is an American paper artist whose work plays with ideas of the two and three dimensional. The techniques used in her large paper installations incorporate a use of materials that make each viewer question their understanding of texture and space. They each appear natural and otherworldly and are often found crawling across walls and floors like an alien liquid, each color bursting in their unique formations that have been bent and molded, cut into strips, or meticulously layered like feathers. She is currently in a solo exhibition entitled "Bioforms and Blooms" at the Stolen Space Gallery in London, which will be on display through February 26th, so be sure to check it out.Artist Creates Undulating Otherworldly Neon Paper Sculptures For London Exhibition seen first on on Strictlypaper
Morgana Wallace is an artist based in Victoria, Canada whose mixed media compositions are created through a fine treatment of collage. She takes several pieces of painted cut paper and layers them, making each scene truly unique and beautiful. Additionally, she applies gouache to many of her works for the finer details like the geometric symbols or the stars in the twinkling night sky. Each piece brings together references of various mythologies with fantastical and dream like elements, creating engaging and complex works of art.
Kazakhstan-based artist Boris Klimov is well known for creating personified taxidermy animal characters as we have seen in the past with good ole' Chefpanzee. His latest cardboard sculpture was inspired by a trip to the Almaty Mountains where their main predator is the snow leopard. He decided to do a mesh of a biker and the leopard together to produce Bar Biker! You can see the foot pedals and handles jutting out in a criss-cross fashion almost making him look like a ninja or a skull and crossbones, either way... it's a snow leopard with attitude!Snow Leopard Meets Biker In This Personified Cardboard Mashup by Boris Klimov seen first on on Strictlypaper
One thing I love, origami! I mean, we have all seen what you can do with origami, from complex tessellations to the traditional paper crane. If you love origami too, then you will love these miniature origami sculptures by Origami Minimal, an artist based in Korea. Her collection of origami is a bit different however, they are unique miniature paper sculptures that have been carefully folded into branded items that we all know and love. For instance the classic pair of Adidas on a mini shoebox shown above, or a Polaroid camera after it has just taken a snap, and even a mini Vespa, and so much more!Artist Transforms Well-Known Products Into Origami Miniatures seen first on on Strictlypaper
We learned a great deal about Australian paper relief artist Jacky Cheng in our past interview, from how she learned joss paper folding from her grandma to her idea of the greatest invention ever made. Her works are nothing short of breathtaking and utilize meticulous care in their creation. Multiple layers are carefully cut and placed on top of one another and sometimes folded and interlocked to reveal gorgeous mandalas.New Beautiful Paper Reliefs That Form Intricate Mandalas by Jacky Cheng seen first on on Strictlypaper
Meticulously handcrafted using small pieces of U.S. one dollar bills, New York based artist Mark Wagner’s currency collages reconfigure the familiar green-and-black-printed paper into fantastical garden scenes, strange creatures and US politicians past and present. In addition to showcasing the uncanny precision for which Wagner is known, the collaged illustrations express poignant criticism of our addiction to money.Meticulously Handcrafted Political Currency Collages by Mark Wagner seen first on on Strictlypaper
It's been a long while since we have seen Los Angeles-based artist Kiel Johnson's amazing cardboard creations. I'm sure you may remember the miniature cityscapes from scraps of cardboard and the amazing cardboard costumes created for the corrugated youth exhibition. Well now he has gone above and beyond, both literally and figuratively, with a stunning aircraft handcrafted entirely in cardboard.
We have featured many beautiful cityscapes throughout the years, some being grand in scale, and some colorful, while others have been carved into books or even forming paper typography. Well let me introduce you to Jung Senarak, a talented illustrator based out of Bangkok, Thailand who has demonstrated his talents through this beautiful series of miniaturized hand-painted watercolor buildings showing old town Bangkok. He has taken great care to painstakingly add the subtlest details, from patched roofing and small posters, to the smallest type on each storefront. Truly astounding!Artist Creates Miniaturized Watercolor Sculptures of Bangkok Out of Paper seen first on on Strictlypaper
