We are fans of the stunning looks of the Lamborghini Aventador, we’re even more enamored by someone going the impressive route and crafting a supercar entirely out of paper. Seattle based artist Taras Lesko crafted this full scale Lamborghini Aventador using only paper. The paparecraft supercar has been styled in the looks of a police interceptor and christened with the name Aventador A-E2. Frame of the car is built on thick cardboard for support, then given shape with printed sheets of E2 architectural paper (hence the name).
Made entirely out of the pages of a dictionary, the dress of Redditor paperbagboris follows the fashion, style and possibly, the skill of some very good dress makers. We like how the paper tries its best to follow fabric, and finally ends up working quite decently as a dictionary paper can, when working as a dress.
If you love typography, you breathe typography, you eat typography, and apparently you sculpt typography. Lithuania-based visual communication studio PRIM PRIM compared fonts to food, and just for good measure made paper sculptures of the food they were talking of, because why not? And it adds layers of cool to everything.
Canadian artist Jobe Brown works with paper to create what he calls 3D Origami. His creations include several popular characters from a wide interest range. There are quite a few Pokemon in the set, Hedwig makes an appearance with the golden snitch, but we are particularly fond of the cute Iron Man you see at top.
Built in the style of adorable minions from Despicable Me, the papercraft Iron Minion is the real deal. Turns out, even Tony Stark was a minion wearing a suit. Given the prowess of minions in developing technologies and things, we are convinced as this being the whole truth.
Nguyễn Hùng Cườngi, an artist of Vietnamese origin has great skill and dexterity when working with paper, as evidenced by these numerous and well executed origami creatures. The artist has not had any formal training or guidance, relying mostly on books to learn and refine his skill to this majestic level. His origami covers a wide range of subjects and creatures, going from Remy of Ratatouille to scorpions, sharks, pterodactyls, and Tow Mater from Cars.
Monica’s apartment from Friends has been recreated by Brazilian artist Bruna Salvador Conforto. The paper replica goes into minute detail, showing off the most simplest of elements in clarity. Right from books, crockery and furniture, to details like Monica and Chandler’s wedding photograph and the placement of magazines, the recreation nails every detail. And it’s all made of paper! The attention to detail is absolutely mindblowing.
Russian graphic designer and artist Yulia Brodskaya cuts and shapes paper with such efficiency and intricacy that the resulting illustrations take a strong grip on the attention of the viewer. The little curls that make the illustrations are quite pretty by themselves, and the illustrations that they make are as pretty as their components.
Connecticut-based artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser recreates coral reefs using bits of paper and acrylic paint. The artist uses paper “almost as a pigment” using layers of color one on top of the other to achieve different colors. We love how colorful the result is. Her works will be on exhibition at Architectural Digest Home Show.
We are well aware that papercraft usually does not lead to the creation of objects that look very real. Thankfully, Los Angeles based artist Vincent Tomczyk was not aware of the said adage, or was all too well aware of the challenge. The artist has created several sculptures of everyday objects, all that look very real and very much like they should be, except of being made entirely out of paper. All surfaces have been painted by hand. Tomczyk’s sculptures will be on display at Gallery 825 in Los Angeles, May 4 to May 31, 2013.
