The vibrant and eye-catching paper artworks by a Paris-based designer combine two of my great loves: paper and colors!
No matter how high-tech the photography and art world gets, I think these advancements just won’t replace paper. I’m sure many will agree with me that aside from physical books, print magazines, and printed photos, sketchbooks and various types of specialty paper will always be around and never go out of use, especially since creative minds are always thinking of ways to play around them!
Case in point? Artworks like the ones made by Maud Vantours, a Paris-based designer who makes amazing patterns and 3D sculptures in various eye-catching colors. I particularly love how she cuts through layers upon layers of paper in different colors, creating patterns and sculptures that draw your eyes through clever use of colors and textures.
While I have no doubts that something like it can be done digitally, I just find it even more impressive that Maud does it painstakingly by hand, and using something as simple as paper — which is also her favorite medium, I later found out!
If you’d like to see more amazing paper masterpieces by artists around the world, take a look at some of my favorites so far:
Rooms contain what the owner values or has come to hate (tucked in boxes, of course). Colors reveal mood swings. Gardens follow the season’s orders. A house keeps up with ever-changing whims and styles—one of the things that make it a home. Here’s something to inspire your next spruce-up.
Gabrielle Malewski loves to capture a person's beautiful angles and expressive eyes. With the Daguerreotype Achromat, she realised a set of delicate and dreamy portraits with a Paris garden as the lush backdrop.
Paris-based photographer Anna Rakhvalova knows her timing. She can catch someone's good angle and that perfect stroke of light. All of which made us wonder: Can our new lens live up to her expectations of a good portrait?

Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
Russian-based artist Julia Borissova combines analogue photography with a variety of materials and techniques such as drawings and collages to express her ideas. Her work often revolves around the role of the past in the present and the concept of home.
