Once again it has been a little bit since we shared an interview, but fret not it was worth the wait! You may already be familiar with the broad array of talent Julianna Szabo possesses through our post about her Silk Road Film Festival typographic pieces, wowing us with the miniature versions of most parts of the globe. Sometimes her work also features stop motion animation, bringing to life these wonderful three dimensional set designs. This interview will take a deeper look into her background, process and how she got to where she is today. Enjoy!Interview with Paper Artist Julianna Szabo seen first on Strictlypaper
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.Interview with Paper Artist Sam Pierpoint seen first on on Strictlypaper
Surprisingly, I can't believe I haven't had the opportunity to write about the incredible talents of internationally recognized, UK based paper artist Hattie Newman. Her work continues to leave me in shock, due to her incredible attention to detail and likeness she is able to create. Newman builds large-scale sets, and in this particular instance cityscapes, that are all entirely made of paper.
She was commissioned by the agency, Imagination to create a 3m by 3m paper city for Canon’s Expo in Paris, where they decided upon a mixture of iconic buildings and architecture styles from around the world, with The Eiffel Tower being the focal point. I love that paper sculpture, once viewed a little closer, is able to transport the audience to that world, immersing you in the elements found in each particular city. The project took about 6 weeks to complete, where it was then installed onto a bespoke plinth. Wow... just wow!
Italian designer and photographer Adriana Napolitano's love for paper is immense and shines through with her incredible set designs completely made of paper. These paper portraits all have various themes, some featuring Adriana herself in several calendar settings, such as the giant wave pictured above, to a gentleman in the full blue luchador costume, to her and her good friend Linus as twinsies!
All in all each character that is portrayed, whether her or her subjects, are ultimately covered in or representing paper in some way. My particular fave happens to be the chef attempting to tame his dinner, hehe. The amount of work that she places into creating each of these paper scenarios alone may seem a bit daunting to some, but Napolitano shows loving effort by building all of the costumes, props and sets for her paper portraits and self-portraits herself. She clearly takes pride in this infinitely malleable medium that we all know and love, paper!
