Kristoffer Marchi

 

Kristoffer Marchi‘s sculptural paper accessories are the stars of this series of portraiture shot by the Swedish photographer. Each one takes on an air of playful drama, with the accessories shown in fun colors and the models captured against simply understated backdrops.

Chuchu

 

Most would say millinery is a dying art form, but not Chuchu. The Hong Kong-born, New York-based creator makes most of her headpieces from paper! Her work has strutted down runways, been spread across the pages of high fashion magazines, and attended the chicest parties. (I think I’d have to display mine prominently after wearing!)

Reina Takahashi / #100paperbreakfasts

 

Last year, from April to July, paper artist Reina Takahashi asked the Instagram community to tell her about their favorite or most memorable breakfasts. From there she created 100 of them, entirely out of paper, in 100 days! Any anecdotes from the person who suggested the meal are noted in the captions on Instagram, where the entire project can be found under #100paperbreakfasts.

Lydia Ricci

 

Philadelphia-based artist Lydia Ricci literally turns trash into treasure. Each of her miniature sculptures is created from bits and pieces of scraps she collects and is based on a distinct memory. I like imagining the patience and dexterity that must go into each little creation!

Andrew Myers

 

These incredible paint and torn paper creations by Andrew Myers have me straight up mesmerized. They also have me thinking I really, really wish I’d thought of that! So I guess what I’m really saying is that I’m completely inspired, which is what most art aspires to do at the end of the day. (A+++)

Clover Robin

 

Illustrator Clover Robin clearly finds delight in all things botanical, a gal after my own heart. At first glance her work left me wondering whether it was drawn or collaged, and you know how I love it when I’m fooled by mediums! My walls are practically begging for a piece of her work to be hung upon them sometime soon.

Christy M. King

 

Christy M. King is Nashville-based, while the flora her botanical collages mimic are all from North Carolina – a nod to her own roots. The series explores what it means to be American (to Americans as well as others), her interest living a green life, and making art through recycling paper scraps.

Griffin Carrick Design

 

Paper quilling is sometimes thought of as and old lady’s craft, but Griffin Carrick‘s work is anything but. As both an interior designer and maker her goal is to transform the everyday into the extraordinary, believing that beauty does not rely on luxury or trend but on the unexpected use of the familiar. Paper is definitely the familiar and Griffin’s use of it in her collages and wall hangings is entirely modern.
