Artist Creates Quirky Illustrations Using An iPhone and Some Paper

Anshuman Ghosh Creates Quirky Illustrations Using An iPhone and Some Paper

Anshuman Ghosh is a visual artist based in South Africa who creates quirky illustrations that revolve around his iPhone. He finds suitable inspiration from everyday occurrences, common observations and more importantly, things that he loves. Each cut paper illustration casts the illusion that his phone is something that it is not, using brightly colored drawings that have been cut up and layered into these fun and newly transformed scenarios. His vibrant ideas are both simple and clever, like two classics such as the Rubix Cube being sliced and transformed into a Tetris game or a paper being shredded into the iPhone only leaving the strips on screen. All in all his talents definitely will leave a smile on your face.

Lavanya Naidoo is a paper artist and tactile designer based in South Africa, whose talents and mastery in quilled artwork and typography are absolutely stunning. I was particularly drawn to her piece entitled "Thorn in My Side," a personal project where the quote was inspired by the musical lyrics from Ash’s song ‘Shining Light’ and it aptly fit into her love for David Austin roses.
