Now we can say that fashion and photography can have a share in this realm with Swiss-Italian born Christian Tagliavini’s Dame Di Cartone, which literally translates to Cardboard Ladies.

A new work from Yulia Brodskaya that takes quilling to completely different level. Just when we think we have seen the magic of paper artwork there is something else that manifests itself. Yulia is definitely one of the most talented quilling artist I have seen to date and her work is definitely awe inspiring and I hope that you enjoy.
Eiko Ojala is a a graphic designer from Tallinn, Estonia and has recently been working with paper as the medium for his illustrations. These clever paper cut portraits utilize the raising and lowering of their edges to make the contours pop in reaction to light.
‘Geronimo’ happened to be one of my favorite collaged map pieces from from Matthew Cusick. Upon first glance from a distance, I was immediately struck by powerfulness of this piece and then realized upon having a closer look how impeccably detailed it is. As you can see below, Matthew has used various maps and atlases cut and reshaped to form these simply refined portraits which are all created on wood.

Murmure is a communication design company based out of France. Their recent project entitled ‘Pochoirs’, directly translated to stencil, utilizes various sized circles in a hole punching technique to convey forms and faces that react to the background that they are placed over.

Andreas Scheiger has just recently completed his latest paper cut entitled ‘Jane’. He chose a different cardboard for this piece unlike the use of color corrugated cardboard in his other amazing work ‘Byrne & Boyle’.

I especially love how he showed the different perspectives of the piece so that you can see the interaction with light, shadow and texture. Lovely work that makes me want to reach out and touch.
