Raya Sader Bujana, the paper artist based in Barcelona created below fantastic serial plane paper figures in collaboration with photographer Garcia Mendez for an Olympic themed stock photography shoot. To create a figure like this is quite complicated than it looks like. For each figure, up to 150 pieces of paper is cut and hundreds of tiny 3mm seperators are used to create the delicate layering effect. Impressive work!
Russian Artist Asya Kozina, the genius designer behind “Mongolian Paper Wedding Costumes” continued to impress us with her latest work – baroque paper wigs. In this series, Kozina sculpted arrangements like flowers, leaves and even an exceptionally intricate sail-boat. They are delicately placed in the mass of extravagant paper hair, adding a sense of fantasy and whimsy to the conceptual compositions. When asked why baroque paper wigs, Kozina said, “historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the baroque era, this is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics — no practical sense, but they are beautiful.”
How much complicated paper-cut can be? Bovey Lee (previous) just raise my bar again and again. After moved from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles and get inspired by two diiferent countries’ living styles, Bovey Lee created a new serires of paper artworks to display the features and landscapes of her old and new lives as if twisted together on the spiraling tracks of rollercoasters. Cut by hand from Chinese xuan paper, the pieces depict collisions of skyscrapers and flower bouquets, buffalos carrying mountainous stacks of suitcases, or wedding cakes are surrounded by storm clouds. As Bovey said, “In these works, I draw parallels between one’s romantic relationship and our relationship with nature. While seeking balance, eternity, stability, and harmony in both relationships, the journey we take on are often complex, dramatic, changing, and lopsided. But there is also incredible beauty, energy, richness, and even whimsy in chaos and imperfections through the ups and downs, and trial and error.”
These delicate paper sculptures created by Korean artist Ho Yoon Shin appear to to vanish when viewed from certain angles. Each fragile sculpture is made of hand-cut paper and those paper strips joined together to make it looks like one whole entity. Moreover, the paper strips provide a fluid opacity that changes dynamically according to perspective – making them fade in and out as one walks around the sculptures.
