I´m always fond of seeing paper taken out of its common use as a 2 dimensional medium, and worked as a building material, as we often see on origami or papercraft. So, I had to admire these paper sculptures by Jen Stark. The detail that goes into them, the vibrant colors and the nature´s inspiration that they translate, clearly show how such a common and overlooked material, such as paper, can be transformed to create amazing and unexpected things. To see more of Jen Stark´s work check out her website.
Always inspiring to see artwork that´s playful and dynamic. To learn more about Sydney Cash and his light sculptures check out http://cargocollective.com/sydneycash.
Above I posted a couple of images of ROA, a street artist, who´s work I admire. There´s also a video from one of his works on Mexico. If you haven´t already, you should really spend some time browsing through his Flickr photostream – ROA’s Flickr Gallery. The animals he uses to illustrate buildings and walls around the world, produce powerful and intense images, reflecting how he manages to integrate them into to the places he paints, and how they transform the context and meaning of those places.
A great concept by the french collective Paper Donut, using painted walls to create a 3D perspective illusion. The one you see above was made as a communication support for a clothing company, but you can find similar works, and some other cool projects on their website http://www.paperdonut.com.
I´ve always admired the vector and graphic work of Sebastien Feraut, aka Niark1, but the way he manage to translate his style into his paintings is also worth seeing. To find out more about him, and his work, check out his website NIARk1 – Creative Studio.
