Eerily Beautiful and Macabre Paper Sculptures by Sinan Soykut

Eerily Beautiful and Macabre Paper Sculptures by Sinan Soykut - Fungi Lungs

Newly emerged, self-taught Canadian paper artist Sinan Soykut has been creating incredibly detailed macabre paper sculptures relating to the theme of life and death, for almost a year. Soykut's fascination for crafting these unique pieces revealed itself after he began the act of transforming two-dimensional planes into three-dimensional curves. A difficult process, no doubt, he is able to visualize the curvature of the paper and exactly where to cut, while also keeping in mind the molds of the detailed shapes that these skeletal hands, flower covered hearts, fungi adorned lungs and skulls produce to the point of being anatomically precise.

Bless This Mess by Scott Campbell

This particular collection has several pieces formed by the artist using laser cutting into low reliefs from uncirculated US currency.

Scott Campbell: Tattoos and Money

Scott Campbell: Tattoos and Money

"Scott Campbell is a sort of semiotician, studying the signs, symbols, and text, commonly found in tattoo culture. His work investigates a familiar lowbrow vernacular, and points out the irony existing within that imagery. His precise technique and masterly of his particular style is only matched in strength by his concern for the human condition. Through the act of chronicling working-class iconography, customarily inked onto skin, Campbell creates a new narrative for the consideration of those recognizable images. He pays tribute to individual stories, and as a result, he records a specific history, which in turn becomes a collective one." -- OH WOW
