Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint

Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint - Paper Bristol

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.

Sam Pierpoint Creates Magical Campaign Promoting Christmas in Bristol Crafted in Paper

Currently residing in the rural countryside just outside of Bristol in the Mendip Hills, paper artist Sam Pierpoint works both commercially and artistically, for a variety of different purposes ranging from advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays.

She was recently commissioned by Peloton Design who wanted to collaborate on a Christmas campaign that would cut through the noise for Visit Bristol. They decided upon a paper sculpture of Bristol that would capture some of the cities most loved attractions. This cityscape is moonlit in the night, and created with G.F Smith papers in a muted color palette of white/champagne. LED lights were carefully threaded through the sculpture to create a warm and inviting glow, allowing for the fine details of the structure to almost glisten against the dark backdrop. The advertising campaign, which also included an editorial illustration, a publication illustration, window display and a making-of video, featured below, successfully helped to promote Bristol as an exciting and magical Christmas shopping destination for 2016.
