In placing delicate paper cities inside glass vessels, Japanese paper artist Ayumi Shibata makes an allusion to the delicate relation we humans have with our environment. The series is named “In the Jar”.
There is paper cut art, and there is mind-blowingly intricate paper cut art that we are sure is held together by magic. The intricacy and detail are both astounding, and a testament to the patience and skill of artist Maude White.
Colorado based artists Hari & Deepti are both well trained and remarkable artists working as graphic designers and artists for different corporations in their day jobs. For their time together, the couple collaborate on these paper cut shadow boxes, some of which we see here.
Canadian artist Steph Caskenette‘s papercraft renderings of scenes from classic Nintendo games are wonderful. The touch of paper makes these good old games and memories look exquisite with an added teaspoon of nostalgia. The images were not created by using actual paper, but the digital effect works just as good for the purpose. Prints available on RedBubble.
German designer Jule Waibel has created a set of 25 dresses, all for Bershka flagship stores in different cities. Jule creates her dresses in the style of origami, starting with a large sheet of paper and hand-pleating it into forms and shapes that fit the body, and create a nice pattern for the dress. Each turn can take as long as 10 hours; with attention like this, no wonder the dresses look amazing.
Our mind has a notion of what paper is, and consequently, of how it should behave. Cut paper art by Pablo Lehmann throws those notions right out the window by making paper behave in odd fashions. At some points, it’s almost like a fabric, showing itself off like a net. In others, it almost looks like a metal wire gauge, or sometimes even clay. Getting paper to be this versatile is no easy job, seeing that it does not normally lend itself well to creations and modifications like these.
Artist Cheong-ah Hwang (previously here and recently on Randommization Facebook page) has a skill of creating lovely three dimensional paper sculptures. The artist creates the sculptures covering a large variety of subjects, going from fairy tales to popular culture icons, or her imagination. The set here shows the artist’s sculptures of hummingbirds. Hwang starts with a sketch, and paper is then cut, sculpt and assembled to take the desired look.
Artist Laura Maria Benavente created this series of food sculpted in paper for a Spanish market. Several of the food items available at the Spanish store were converted into intricate and detailed papercraft sculptures showing off the variety and perhaps the palpability of the items available.
Graphic designer Alia Syed built these paper quilling sculptures of famous characters. The geeky paper quilling sculptures were made out of quarter inch strips of paper glued down at their edges. It does give them quite an interesting look, like something that would come out of traditional drawings of these characters.
