“The Spanish street artist Nuria Mora has created colorful origami pieces and placed them on display in public ad spaces in Tirso de Molina square, downtown Madrid. Inserting her 3D paper sculptures into billboards in the bustling city center, they can be enjoyed by shoppers and passers-by, as they are viewable from both sides and lit up at night.” — PSFK
“Started in ’99, this is my life work. I individually cut single sheets of paper by free-hand and stack them together. The work consists of positive or negative shapes. I am trying to embody relationships among humans, time and nature.” — Noriko Ambe
Our next interviewee comes from Bournemouth, UK where she specializes in bringing to life the portraits of her paper sculptures. Her truly unique style reminds me of marionettes putting on a show or conveying a certain emotion in how they are captured through her work. A lot of her work represented here showcases that of familiar fairy tales we all grew up with, although her work has a very broad range. I present to you paper sculptor Sher Christopher, I hope that you enjoy her work and interview as much as we have.
“Only by folding one piece of paper an expressive masterpiece can be created. This is the Japanese way of folding.In order to link the past with future generations regarding the form of folding, I do not limit myself to the category of origami but consider the pursuit of any possibility of folding paper.” — Yuko Nishimura

David Benmussa is a graphic designer based out of Paris, France. He has a wide range of dabbling, but one that particularly caught me of course was his latest piece. He has created a mounted paper sculpture, a tribute to Joy Division & Peter Saville, for his participation in Music Covers Exhibition that will be running in France from December 1st to January 12, 2012.
“This work (called Stereo.type) is a synthesis of our typographic language with the physical expression of our body language. These kinetic structures make the viewer listen with their eyes… or how can we make sound and its symbols found in language able to be heard visually. How can we unlock the sleeping meaning latent in a authors arrangement of letters and words to be free and as expressive as its content. When words come alive it will not be quiet. Some may yell or whisper, but they all are saying something.” — Ebon HeathContinue reading
“By taking away all the information and starting from scratch using the blank white A4 paper sheet for my creations, I feel I have found a material that we are all able to relate to, and at the same time the A4 paper sheet is neutral and open to fill with different meaning. The thin white paper gives the paper sculptures a frailty that underlines the tragic and romantic theme of my works.” — Peter Callesen
