Colorful 3D Paper Designs Beautifully Showcase Emotion

Colorful 3D Paper Designs Beautifully Showcase Emotion | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
In 2006, then-graphic designer Yulia Brodskaya abandoned the computer in favor of paper art. It always held a special fascination for her, and she now draws with paper instead of on it. The artist’s unique images are no doubt eye-catching; she utilizes the relatively simple technique of quilling to carefully cut and bend the material into lush, vibrant 3D designs.
Brodskaya’s illustrations have graced the advertising campaigns of companies like Target, Sephora, and Starbucks, but she’s also created a series of portraits that celebrate her love of the craft. These heavily-detailed works are colorful representations of people and fantastic characters. Using bended paper strips, she forms patterns that translate into the wrinkles on someone’s skin or the folds in their sweater.
Brodskaya also uses paper as a way to show emotion and the passing of time. In an especially poignant piece, we see an older woman wearing a scarf around her head. The image features a black background, and the…

Visually Striking Minimalist Photos Represent an Abstract World

Visually Striking Minimalist Photos Represent an Abstract World | IELTS, ESP and CALL | Scoop.it
This visually striking series, by Budapest-based photographer Adrienn Balaskó, relies on reflections, symmetry, and natural light to produce elegant and abstract formations. The artist draws upon real life scenes—birds flying across a grassy field, lamp posts lined up in a row, a single boat floating on a lake—and then transforms them into strikingly minimal compositions that show off the simple, still, and stunning representations of the world  through the artist's eyes.
Balaskó focuses on single elements surrounded by blue skies and vast landscapes. She flips things around, turns them upside-down, and reinterprets what she sees to create the abstract works that are almost surreal. Some photographs are filled with vivid colors while others are simply black and white, focusing more on the shape, form, light, and repetition of objects. She blurs the horizon lines so that earth and sky become one single plane on which objects exist. The results are these captivating photographs that are…
