Using found paper as his palette, artist Peter Clark creates intricate three-dimensional collages. He shades with density of print and creates substance and movement with lines plucked from old maps or manuscripts he finds in antique shops. Clark’s pieces are innovative as he utilizes the patterns and textures in a humorous way. Peter focuses much of his expertise on creating dog collage portraits, however his clothing and people portraits are equally incredible. To see more of Peter’s incredible collage sculptures, check out his website where you can purchase his book and original art!
Architectural design studio, Stickyline, based in Hong Kong, created a series of paper helmets shaped as iconic buildings from their famous skyline. The team selected the Cultural Center, Space Museum, International Finance Center, HSBC Headquarters and the Convention and Exhibition Center for this amazing project. By folding bright paper into building-shaped hats for their series entitled, “Masked Creature”, the Stickyline team hoped to showcase the harmonic connection between the people and the buildings. The helmets were made as part of the deTour 2011 design event. As they introduce the familiar structures with a new perspective, the Stickyline team certainly give us a new understanding of the beautiful city.

Danish artist, Peter Callesen creates intricate paperwork in large and small-scale. Most of his smaller scale art has a slightly tragic quality to it. However, each is piece is unbelievable in its own aspects of fragility. Peter Callesen doesn’t so much create works on paper, but rather works from paper; creating sculptural works by folding paper. To see more of his breath-taking art, visit Peter Callesen’s website.
