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. "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.

Artist Hong Yi Plays with her Food for 30 Days For almost every day last month Malaysian artist/architect Hong Yi (who often goes by the nickname Red) created a fun illustration made with common (and occasionally not so common) food. Her parameters were simple: the image had to be comprised entirely of food and the only backdrop could be a white plate. With that in mind Yi set out to create landscapes, animals, homages to pop culture, and even a multi-frame telling of the three little pigs. The project, which still appears to be ongoing, has been documented heavily around the web, but if you haven’t seen it all head over to her Facebook and read an interview on designboom. Photos will also be appearing on her Instagram at @redhongyi. Sculptures en crayons - Jennifer Maestre When we are talking about pencil, what would you relate to?

Jennifer was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, but finished her B.A. in Wellesley College, U.S.. Jennifer’s sculptures were inspired by the form and function of the sea urchin. The following are some amazing sculptures of Jennifer we selected.

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 » Amazing 3D Street Art Illusions by Edgar Mueller Who isn’t awed by the amazing 3D street art paintings of Edgar Mueller, and other pavement artists? They create illusions which use a public space, such as urban centers, town squares, streets and sidewalks. 3D pavement art is labelled as a type of performance art in that artists work in view of the general public and people passing by - and get to see their reactions. These people often participate with the art piece by standing near the edge as if trying to avoid falling in, and also pose for photos. The paintings are also temporary, and prone to changes in weather. Also take a look at the incredible anamorphic street paintings of Inge Wagner and Gregor Wosik! Outstanding Anamorphic STREET ART! Permission granted for photo use by Edgar Mueller. How to Make 3D Street Art One thing you may be wondering is how are 3D street paintings made? I remember doing this sort of thing as an art school project – but a wall was used. Evolution - Edgar Mueller The Crevasse - Edgar Mueller
