Paper art is quickly becoming an established form of art. In the recent years, paper artists who are specializing in making different types of artworks by using paper as their medium are gaining worldwide recognition. From paper cutting to paper quilling and paper sculpture, paper art is indeed a new and sensational form of art. And here’s another phenomenal paper artist to make a statement. UK-based illustrator Lisa Lloyd hand-cuts paper to create stunning 3D paper sculptures that are mostly inspired by nature.
She began working with paper eight years ago. Prior to that, she was working as a graphic designer and animator for an animation company in London. But since she discovered her passion in paper crafts, she decided to focus on the art. Creating sculptures that are made entirely from paper is now her main profession. As a nature lover, she finds inspiration from the endless beauty of nature. By using paper as her medium, she tries to express nature’s infinite beauty by capturing even its tiniest details.
In order to achieve the desired patterns, color, symmetry, and texture, she meticulously picks out paper with interesting colors and finishes. She proceeds by cutting the paper into smaller pieces that will make up the tiny details. Every strand of a bird’s feather, every scale on a chameleon’s body, is elaborately crafted by hand. The results are incredible 3D paper sculptures that look so vivid and visually captivating.
