There are many beautiful artworks made of paper that we have seen throughout this site and many others, whether monumental sculptures or unique carvings out of books. However, there is one technique I feel hasn't gotten as much love it deserves, the art of paper quilling. There are so many talented artists out there and I feel that it is absolutely necessary to share them with you all, even if this is just the beginning. The featured artists share a common goal in breaking the boundaries of traditional quilling, leaving the viewer mesmerized, with circling questions of "how did they do that?!" and "Wow, that's incredible!" I hope you enjoy this selection!Top 20 Amazing Examples of Paper Quilling seen first on Strictlypaper
REVERBERE is a lab-workshop based in Paris where tailor-made graphic solutions are brought to life.

Paris based artist Agnès Cappadoro has a body of work that utilizes a hybrid quilling technique to visualize the notions of topography through pieces of art, combining photographs and sculptures, while exploring Augustin Berque’s sentence "Man is a geographic human-being." Inspired by minimalism, kinetic art and photography, she creates sculptures that mimic geometrical paintings and settings that transmit the vision and relationship between works of art and bodies. She documents impermanence and a constantly changing geography. Her work, calling for contemplation, is a long meditation where patience is simultaneously a process, a medium, a message and a goal.Minimal Kinetic Landscapes in Paper by Agnès Cappadoro seen first on Strictlypaper

Paper artist Matthew Shlian is well known for having a knack for paper engineering, producing precisely folded geometric works that are composed of mesmerizing tessellations. As stated in our interview with him, "I now work with scientists using paper engineering as a way to understand the flexible nature of micro-structures. A symbiotic relationship has developed between my collaboration with researchers and my artistic practice."
Shlian’s solo exhibition TELEMETRY, which explores the intersection between science and art has been on display for the past month at Florida Gulf Coast University and runs through March 2, 2017. You can see more of his intricately folded work on his Instagram and Facebook.
Technicolor Fragments Depict Human Figures in an Ambiguous State Between Construction and Deconstruction
February 24th - April 1st, 2017
Derrick Adams is a multidisciplinary New York-based artist whose work destabilizes the cultural understanding of urban and identity politics through performance, collage, sculpture and installation. His practice focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, exploring self image and forward projection. His ongoing collage series, "Deconstruction Worker," is motivated by architectural vocabulary. Influenced by the exploration of the urban dweller, Adams implements geometric constructions of human figures in an ambiguous state between construction and deconstruction. This series will be on display at the Rhona Hoffman Gallery through April 1st, 2017 in Chicago.Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting Exhibition seen first on Strictlypaper

I have the pleasure of sharing with you a new exhibition that opened only two days ago entitled Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting which will be on view at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire.
This exhibition showcases the works of contemporary artists who reconsider, redefine and even subvert the centuries-old practice of paper cutting. In the tradition of the craft, the art to be featured in the exhibition is impressive as well as intricate, but its subject matter has been updated for the 21st century. Addressing deeper personal or social themes, the works will touch upon complex reference points including the various cultural, economic and environmental associations imbued in the humble medium of paper.Deep Cuts: Contemporary Paper Cutting Exhibition seen first on Strictlypaper
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
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.
