Kiel Johnson Reaches New Heights with Cardboard Aircraft

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.

I'm sure some of us have seen some pretty amazing installations in the past whether it be large or small, there are some extremely talented artists out there who deserve some praise. Kiel Johnson happens to be one of those artists and should be duly noted thanks to his astounding installation entitled “Everyone’s an Architect” for TEDActive 2012.

Corrugated Youth: A Cardboard Exhibition with Kiel Johnson

Kiel Johnson is a locally based Los Angeles artist who not only creates mind-blowing illustrations, but also makes incredible realistic pieces with only the use of cardboard, hot glue and tape. He recently was the artist in residence at Cypress Hill College for an intensive three day workshop with students to help him create and film his upcoming video project with Roger.TV. During his stay the students were able to learn what it's like to be hands on in the studio as well as see Kiel's process from conceptualization to realization and produce some seriously cool robot outfits for the shoot.
