Craft art: the toilet roll sculptures of Anastasia Elias
When it comes to paper cutting and sculpture, most of us have seen the work of Rob Ryan, and there are various workshops popping up all over London to try out the art of paper cutting.
Never before have I seen 3D paper cutting used in this way. It's both highly skilled and simple at the same time. The tiny cuts in the card draw your eyes in to find out what's going on in the little story.
Anastastia is an illustrator by craft and has illustrated many books, including her recent publication written by Georges Brassens - Avec à la lèvre un doux chant.
She turned to creating art from toilet rolls after spying a discarded paper tube in the bin. Instead of throwing it away, she decided to see if she could come up with something unique.
Since then, Anastasia has created many different scenes, mainly from every day life. She says she wants to bring attention to the small every day situations that we all experience, but which are often over looked.
Her work is very detailed and I love the way she photographs her pieces, turning the rolls around before lighting up the scene inside.
Have you seen any awesome paper sculptures? We'd love to hear about it![Images via Anastasia Elias]
