There have been several different paper birds featured throughout the site, this however is one that I have never heard of. The Tomtit is a bird within the Australian robin family that is generally found in New Zealand. Haarlem Netherlands-based artist Kiki Peeters, inspired by trips to taxidermy museums, has created her paper crafted rendition of the Tomtit. This sculpture uses several different layers mimicking that of the layers of feathers found on a bird achieving a life-like quality overall. Be sure to check out her site to see more of her paper crafted animals. There is a sneak peek of the tiger below.
You may remember the stunning piece from Brian Li and team last year entitled Still Life Comes Alive, which portrayed thousands of pieces of paper which were folded and glued together to form the sentence which literally and perfectly illustrated itself.
With their more recent piece, ‘WORDS CAN FLY A THOUSAND MILES’ the focus behind the project is to provide an aid to people in Fukushima, Japan suffering from the aftermath of the natural disasters and nuclear plant crisis that occurred last March. They created this three dimensional typographic poster out of paper as a poster which represents their hope that the words and messages can encourage Japan during this difficult time.
Colombian designer and illustrator Diana Beltran Herrera has created these uniquely crafted paper birds.
Andy Singleton has been featured on Strictlypaper a couple of times now it is due to his superb mastery in paper crafting. While working with stylist Nikki Docker, he was commissioned to create a series of installations at Hermés based on the theme of travel and adventure. He created three paper chickens, 3 small 30cm boats and one large scale, partial boat, approximately one meter long that appears to be riding on paper waves. Lovely job!
Here is a preview of the birds that will be displayed by paper artist Andy Singleton, who had been commissioned to create a hand-crafted paper installation for the recent opening of The Liberty Stationery Room on March 10th, which includes a three-metre long window installation and two framed wall pieces. They unveiled a whimsical and romantic set of three woodland scenes called ‘They loved What They Found’. The three pieces are based around the idea of nesting birds. Stay tuned for more information and pictures regarding the installation.
