After several years of establishing herself as a painter, North Yorkshire-based artist Clare Lindley decided to take up the craft of paper cut art. She loved the craft so much so, that for the past 4 years this has become the preferred medium in her pieces.
London-based architecture studio Orproject has installed a forest of illuminated paper trees that sync together to form a continuous canopy at a gallery in New Delhi India. The installation, called Vana, which means forest in Sanskrit, is a series which embodies the basic forms of nature and features four trunk-like structures designed to mimic natural growth patterns. To achieve this, the team developed a series of algorithms that mimic the veins that are found in leaves.
We love our fair share of paper food sprinkled throughout the site, hence the need to include this gem, especially for pizza lovers! The lovely pizza paper sculpture you see before you is a collaborative submission by Leeds-based graphic designers Sebastian Needler and Andy Foster for YCN’s Fedrigoni brief. Within the brief they were asked to provide a range of products highlighting specifically the high-end stock, while also showcasing their versatility. They decided to link back to Fedriogini’s Italian origins with arguably Italy’s most famous food, the pizza.
If you are at the starting point of looking for a Valentine’s Day card for your loved one, look no further! Kate from Mini Eco has designed this lovely pop-up pixel heart card that you can download on her site for free. There are detailed instructions for both light paper and dark. Also provided are scoring instructions. You can find all the information you need here.
Known for their mastery in paper craft and thinking outside of the box, London-based design studio Nearly Normal are far and few in between when it comes to showcasing their talent. You may remember one of their projects “The Wolf I Used To Be…” a beautiful stop-motion animation where a wolf wants to become a man and then realized he is better off where he was in the beginning.
In this installment, Nearly Normal has created a calendar, but with a twist. The entire calendar is made out of paper and each month shows a different fruit cut in half with the patterned numbers of that particular month on the inside. I love the colors and I think the project itself is beautifully done. Each of the items were paper crafted by Victoria Bee, Rita Araujo, and Cris Wiegandt.
Last year around about this time we featured the introductory Horrorgami series from talented kirigami artist Marc Hagan-Guirey aka Paper Dandy, which featured The Shining, The Amityville Horror, The Exorcist, and The Addams Family.
Well, it’s that time of year again! With Halloween right around the corner it felt appropriate to share his latest NEW works of Horrorgami where in this installment of classics we have the house from Psycho, fire station from Ghostbusters, apartment building from Rosemary’s Baby,the Deezte residence from Beetlejuice and the Venice waterway from Don’t Look Now. Each Horrorgami is sold as a limited edition of 13, how fitting, for purchase on his site here. Stay tuned, the series won’t be complete until there are 13 total.
England-based artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson has carved these antiquarian books into unique sculptures and has brought to life the narrative scenarios that lie within them. We have seen several types of book carving throughout our site, varying from landscapes or even portraits. Alexander’s pieces reflect the original context of these books, each illustration within in their original position as a way to convey their meanings through each layer.
We have showcased a fair amount of different styles of portraits sprinkled throughout the site, each being unique in their own techniques and execution. Some of which included the amazing collaged works of Nikki Douthwaite and Senseteam.
UK-based artist Jamie Poole has come to perfect a technique where he collages deconstructed poetry into beautifully intricate and astounding large scale portraits. The detailing in these pieces, from shading to depth, is just blowing my mind. The portrait above is his self portrait where he used loved letters written back and forth from him and his wife. AMAZING!
‘Ordinary Behavior’ is a project designed by product designer and illustrator Kevin LCK where the premise explores the unhealthy relationship between ourselves and the technology that surrounds us in everyday context.
Kevin has created a set of five illustrative objects as the tools of revealing absurd situations. They are all made of paper cardboard and appear to be everyday electronic appliances and devices that can be found in our domestic environment, however, their interiors are modified into miniaturized human scaled dioramas.
Having been peppered throughout the site quite frequently featuring a wide range of projects from installations, to works with Hermés and even paper cut illustrations, Andy Singleton is no stranger to our site! With such a wide background and range in the development in his craft, I am more than pleased to share our interview with him as well as the lovely videos that accompany a couple of the pieces.
