In this Monday’s inspiration of the week I wanted to show how paper art and typography can be brought together for commercial uses such as, in advertising campaigns and magazine covers. Below are a few examples of the extremely talented Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator from Russia, but living in the UK.
Keeping with the paper art theme, I came across these super delicate pieces produced by Anastasia Elias a French illustrator. They are created by cutting up small paper shapes and sticking them inside toilet rolls, the scenes are then brought to life with the right lighting and photography. I love all the different scenes she creates.
This weeks inspiration is a local jewelry designer Nicole Wellstein and her company Mana Jewelry Designs. I first discovered her work at the Whistler Art Council’s Bizarre Bazaar last year and have purchased multiple items since.
Her work is very unique as it is not your typical jewelry, each piece is eco friendly and handmade using exotic wood offcuts and bamboo.
