Lorraine Nam

Lorraine Nam-2-Design Crush

 

Lorraine Nam is a paper illustrator out of Brooklyn who works with flat sheets of paper to create miniature 3D paper objects. The end result is usually a photograph or animation, so she likes to think of each creation as a prop. Lorraine also cuts into single pieces of paper to create one large image for massive impact.

Carly Foulkes

Carly Foulkes-1-Design Crush

 

Carly Foulkes wears a few different artistic hats, and well, but my favorite is her dreamy collage work. Interestingly enough she never glues her work down, allowing herself to reuse pieces again and again. It all seems to fit together with a philosophy of constant change and evolution, just like in Carly’s work. Swing by her shop to scoop up a piece for yourself.

Peter Gentenaar

Peter Gentenaar-1-Design Crush

 

Peter Gentenaar‘s love of paper began during his days as a printmaker. So he learned about it, he started making his own, and then he moved on to making these breathtaking objects. The sculptures start as 2-dimensional colored sheets of pulp, the forms caused by the pulp drying and shrinking in unison. I’m impressed by every aspect from the detail to the sheer size.
