Marcelo Kato Creates Colorful Mediterranean Sea Inspired Cut Paper Illustrations

Marcelo Kato Creates Colorful Mediterranean Sea Inspired Cut Paper Illustrations - Golden Dragon

From the magnificent depths of his imagination, Brazilian paper artist Marcelo Kato handcrafts visually breathtaking layered paper illustrations that are so intricately detailed, you literally have to look just a bit closer... WOW! This fantasy world, Marcelost World, is a parallel universe he manifested years ago after a cruise through the Mediterranean Sea. From there, the style of his art was drastically influenced, where the sea creatures and patterned motifs in their vibrant colors are all clearly reminiscent of the Mediterranean. Each detail down to the bricks in the architecture of 'Golden Dragon' featured above, each lain side by side and meticulously placed, or the itty bitty scales on each fish layered ever so perfect down to their fun patterned outfits in 'Golden Coral' below is absolutely mind-boggling!

Botanical Studies Through Colorful Cut Paper Illustrations

Botanical Studies Through Colorful Cut Paper Illustrations by Niege Borges

Hailing from the super cold and sometimes super hot south of Brazil, Brooklyn based graphic designer and illustrator Niege Borges has an online body of work comprised of colorful infographics. This same color splashed theme shows through in this stunning series that she started earlier this year. "I started this series," she tells Strictlypaper, "because I decided to combine my love for old botanical illustrations and my desire to make something that is not digital at all. I make a lot of work on my computer and I really like it, but for a while I felt like I needed to create something more tactile with paper, which I always liked to play with."

Cardboard sculptures can come in all shapes and sizes, as we have seen throughout the site, with a uniqueness and complexity that is decided based on each project. Anderson Diego Lopes, a graphic designer and paper crafter based out of Brazil, has done just that. He was commissioned by DLP Comunicação to create such a project with this ad showcasing the details of a Harley Davidson, but completely constructed out of a variant of cardboard known as paperboard. Within this work you can see the exquisite detailing and effort that was put into this piece. Upon close inspection the craftsmanship that went into this definitely is reflected to give the simplified and minimal version of an actual Harley Davidson.
