Sculpture sur Papier - Calvin Nicholls

Sculpture sur Papier - Calvin Nicholls
It was only a matter of time before Calvin Nicholls' life-long passion in art and wildlife combined! The Canadian has been a full-time paper sculpture artist since the mid-1980's. With such a variety of animals in his collection, he's essentially created his own paper zoo. Many of the animal paper sculptures belong in Nicholls' most extensive collection, which includes over 75 pieces for Follett Library Resources in McHenry Illinois. The series began in the mid-1990's and continues to this day. "Initially a rigid form is constructed which establishes the contours of the subject and provides a stable base upon which the detail pieces are attached," Nicholls' says, as he explains his process.

Dessins au crayon et illusion de relief - Ramon Bruin Most of these drawings by Ramon Bruin seem relatively simple, but at the same time, because of their shadows and some intriguingly placed real-life props in the photographs, the sketched images appear to be almost magically leaving the bounds of the paper they’re drawn on… (via My Modern Met) MOKO INK » work

Sculptures en crayons - Jennifer Maestre When we are talking about pencil, what would you relate to? Maybe you would think about writing or drawing, but there is an artist who really thinks out of the box. She is Jennifer Maestre, a sculptor. Jennifer was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but finished her B.A. in Wellesley College, U.S.. She later gained her B.F.A. in Massachusetts College of Art. Jennifer’s sculptures were inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. The following are some amazing sculptures of Jennifer we selected. Tugboat Printshop Dessins Miniatures - Lorraine Loots Une peinture miniature par jour pendant un an, voici le projet de l’artiste sud-africaine Lorraine Loots intitulé « 365 Postcards for Ants » Story Behind Those Stunning Cinematic Gifs Here at theMET, we're always looking for creative projects that catch our eye. More than anything, we love posting about work that pushes boundaries, showing our audience something that has been changed, flipped or spinned into something magically different. Then, we see it as our job to find out the story behind such projects. What inspired the artist or photographer to start down that path? What do they hope others get out of their work? A few days ago, when Met member Mark Huckabee put up a post called Astounding Animated Gifs, we knew we had to dig deeper. Before we go into that more, enjoy these lovely cinemagraphs that they sent directly to us. What's been the response like, so far, on your animated gifs? Which of them is your favorite piece and why? What do you hope others get out of these works? Which gif has been the most popular and why do you think that is? Were you inspired by other gifs or anyone else before you started this more artistic ones? From Me to You website

Sculptures de crayon - Dalton Ghetti Nouvel artiste à ajouter dans la catégorie (toujours fictive) « Insolite » et néanmoins talentueux, voici Dalton Ghetti et ses sculptures de crayon. C’est vraiment impressionnant et je vous invite à jeter un oeil. Depuis 25 ans, Dalton Ghetti exerce avec minutie sa passion. Vu la taille d’une mine de crayon en graphite, on peut dire que cet homme a une patience et une habileté impressionnante. Il dit lui-même que cet art peut être extrêmement frustrant lorsqu’il arrive à la fin de sa création et qu’il commet une erreur, donc j’imagine que souvent la mine se casse… Pour en savoir plus sur son travail c’est par là : Dalton Ghetti sur OddStuffMagazine Que pensez-vous de cet artiste insolite ?

Paper Art - Elsa Mora Artwork and Photography © Elsa Mora ↓ Links to other galleries: *Artist’s Books *Mixed Media *Painting *Editorial *Drawing *Jewelry *Photography The World's Most Complex Architectural Columns Architect and programmer Michael Hansmeyer has undertaken a most ambitious project, designing an incredibly ornate and complex column with over 16 million individual facets! Hansmeyer has taken his initiative beyond the computer design phase and actually fabricated a full-scale 2.7 meter (8.8 ft) column made from stacked cardboard sheets. Check out the pics and information below for more details on this fascinating exploration. The project involves the conception and design of a new column order based on subdivision processes. An abstracted doric column is used as an input form to the subdivision processes. The input form is tagged to allow the subdivision process to distinguish between individual components. The result is a series of columns that exhibit both highly specific local conditions as well as an overall coherency and continuity. A full-scale, 2.7-meter high variant of the columns is fabricated as a layered model using 1mm sheet.
