The latest quilled portrait from talented paper artist Yulia Brodskaya. From her last piece Loves Doves to this piece, she has definitely changed the tone of colors to be less of a skin tone varient in terms of palette and more vibrant. This woman’s face bursts with swirls of color as she smokes her pipe and seems to be a perfect blend into the start of Spring.
Quilling, as we have showcased several times throughout Strictlypaper, is the art of rolling and pinching thin strips of paper into very unique designs. Sherry Rodehaver has been quilling since 1971, and for this piece entitled “Second Nature,” she, along with four other women, reimagined the symbolic “T” for the New York Times as a field bursting with sunflowers, dandelions and a butterfly that feels as if it would fly away from the illustraton. Rodehaver explained to the New York Times Style Magazine, “I never want anybody to walk away from my work without having that wow factor.” This speaks volumes since it has definitely left me with a “WOW” exclamation on my face!,/p> Continue reading
Lisa Nilsson is an amazingly talented New York-based artist whose work has a wide range of artwork, but more specifically has these that pieces are Quilled Paper Anatomical Sculptures, where quilling is the rolling of paper to produce larger works. A couple of other artists who do an amazing job in this realm of paper art are Yulia Brodskaya and Anant Nanvare.
We saw the work of Yulia Brodskaya before with some of her earlier style of work like Christmas in Wonderland where she incorporates text as well as a scene. Now she is starting to explore a new style entirely where she makes a portrait completely from quilling like her earlier piece Babushka. This being her latest work entitled “Loves Doves” I can only expect them to become more disarming and more beautiful. To see more details of this piece you can view here.
Anant Nanvare is a very talented digital illustrator from Mumbai, India as well as very talented with what appear to be thousands of rolled pieces of paper. He has created an incredible series of colorful and very detailed portraits made from rolling paper into tiny stacks for Conquerer Paper.
You may have seen the incredible detailed paper illustration of the Casio G-Shock GA-110 created by Lobulo Design that we featured here in the past. Now Lobulo has just recently completed a personal project entitled Olé School (I love the play on words) that is reminiscent of “El Día de Muertos”.
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.
I had recently come across the talented Brittney Lee and her beautiful fantasy-like illustrations and then while going through her work was completely blown away by the fact that she creates some of her paintings in paper form as well and I must say the detailing in these pieces are absolutely incredible. So it is my pleasure to share this treasure with you.
Before we can talk about “The Move” as a film you must first start with all of the incredible elements that are seen throughout. The house, the interior and the set are what clearly make this film a work of art and Mandy Smith is the craft master behind it all. With only the use of paper, glue, foam board and wire, she has delicately crafted a very unique piece of work depicting a little of the heart of Amsterdam.
I must showcase the latest piece from Yulia Brodskaya, an incredibly talented Russian illustrator who we may widely know her for her innovative paper illustrations and who continues to create beautifully detailed paper designs for clients all around the world. She has recently been commissioned to create the main visual for the 2010 Christmas campaign based around the headline ‘Christmas in Wonderland’. This work being one of the many amazingly refined quilled projects she has done.
