South Africa’s Kulula Airlines has its planes dressed in a livery that is a far cry from usual standards.

UK based Italian artist Paola Bazz reworks and re-uses printed paper to create three dimensional collages that have a three dimensional effect. The choice of printed paper comes as a metaphor for everyday life where a fair amount of information of our lifestyle and culture lives, and of course, the printed paper is a medium that has tremendous power of effect.
