Once again it has been a little bit since we shared an interview, but fret not it was worth the wait! You may already be familiar with the broad array of talent Julianna Szabo possesses through our post about her Silk Road Film Festival typographic pieces, wowing us with the miniature versions of most parts of the globe. Sometimes her work also features stop motion animation, bringing to life these wonderful three dimensional set designs. This interview will take a deeper look into her background, process and how she got to where she is today. Enjoy!Interview with Paper Artist Julianna Szabo seen first on Strictlypaper
Dublin based artist Julianna Szabo is the creator of intricately detailed, hand-cut paper sets and illustrations. Her tactile worlds are often three dimensional and sometimes even brought to life with the use of stop motion animation, drawing you in with several visual metaphors. This typographic series was a commission for the annual Silk Road Film Festival, where she was asked to create a poster that represented the event. Her inspiration was drawn from the ancient silk road itself, making the 3D hand crafted, paper letters a representation of the journey along that road.
The S, in the form of a mountain, represents China and is wrapped with a winding dragon, the R representing India, is stacked with a tall latticed building atop an elephant, the F for the Arabic world, features beautiful golden mosque domes and a camel in the desert, and lastly, the F for Europe, features well known landmarks, like Greek columns, the Roman Amphitheater and the waterways of Venice. Be sure to watch the making of to get a more in depth look into how it all came together. Each letter is so ornately detailed and fashioned with the monuments and architectural structures from these regions, I can only imagine the amount of hours it must have taken to accomplish such a wonderful masterpiece.
