Patianne Stevenson: Cardboard Food Sculptures. Mykl Wells - Chimera, Cardboard Sculpture. My name is Mykl Wells, I’m an artist currently living in Tucson Arizona. I am known for using recycled materials in my work. I built this large cardboard sculpture in 2008. Titled, “Chimera” it is over nine feet tall and is made entirely out of recycled cardboard. The title refers to the Mythological greek creature and also the medical term, meaning the merger of two distinct genetic groups. The beast is a blending of human and feline elements. ++ More information at Mykl Wells website !

David Stark Sketchbook: Cardboard Artist. Share on Facebook We had a whole lot of fun helping our buddies at West Elm celebrate the opening of their exciting and comprehensive new store at 870 Broadway last week.

David Stark Sketchbook: Cardboard Artist

About 700 people came by to say hi, have a drink, admire the new digs, and generously bid on a silent auction of objects we created out of the store’s packing and catalogue waste to benefit the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. The idea was hatched over drinks one night last summer when Alex Bates, West Elm’s amazing Senior Vice President and Creative Director, described to me how much refuse was unavoidably part of opening a store. What a shame, of course, but also . . . WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY! We created a 10 foot tall lamp from larger packing boxes to command the ground floor window space at 870 Broadway and to beautifully complement West Elm’s natural furnishings. Although our lamp lit up, I thought it would be fun to have an oversized cardboard plug curled to its side. So how did this all happen? Giles Oldershaw: Carved Cardboard Portraits.

Andy Rudak: Cardboard Cities

With the help of master set-builder Luke Aan de Wiel, Andy recreated dream-like views of London, New York, Mumbai, Paris and Tokyo. "I knew I wanted the shots to portray a scene of serenity" Andy says, "I had decided I wanted these scenarios to be void of any obvious human presence so I used an animal for each shot as the main focal point. From this I was drawn to the idea of the taxidermy animals. I felt they were crucial to achieving the feeling of serenity I was after. " A book following the process of construction from start to finish is being published with an exhibition of final images touring agencies and galleries this autumn and winter.

However this statement hardly captures the absurd complexity and detail of his boxboard and PVA glue sculptures that push the limits of the medium. Agdag is an award-winning creator of stop-motion films and this new series of work, Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make, feature a number of his structural experiments which he refers to simply as “sketching with cardboard”. Miraculously, each work is created without detailed plans or drawings and are almost wholly improvised as he works. You can see these latest sculptures at Off the Kerb Gallery starting October 26, 2012 in Melbourne’s inner north suburb of Collingwood.

Forget the artistic greats like Monet and Picasso that you learned about in school, and take a look at what’s being presented these days. Chile- Beautiful Mountains, Excellent Wine and Don LuchoDon Lucho of Santiago, Chile, presents an interesting study in 3D cardboard sculpture with his life-sized, real-world portrayal of happenings like car crashes and downed planes.
