Abigail Reynolds takes the art of cutting paper to whole new levels, forming geometry, shape and inter-dimensionality from a singular plane. And, for a round up of some other amazing artists also working with cut paper be sure to check out our post on Cut Paper!
Li Hui, a conceptual artist born in the (a term which is often used here) post-70’s decade, creates a lot of his work with automobiles and “custom laser array, Laser Night Module, waterjet cutting machines, and laser engraving machines” in his arsenal. He’s even welded two front parts of a car together and turned yet another car into a pink sofa. Check out his video interview on The Creator’s Project.
And yes, I am alive and well in China!
Renata Raksha is an amazing young LA-based fashion photographer whose work has been infused with a strong sense of narrative – secret getaways, furtive glances, mood defining shadows and light. One of the things I find to be most beautiful about her photos is the texture overlaid on top of strong composition. Having worked with and collaborated with a broad range of clients from VANS to local noise band HEALTH, I can definitely see more projects in the future in which she can showcase her talent.

Mastodon Mesa, an on-going project at the Pacific Design Center curated by Graham Kolbeins and Mya Stark, invites you to lose yourself in the twists and turns of Albert Reyes’ vast handbuilt maze. Comprised of re-purposed wood discarded on the streets of L.A., this stunning installation has been under construction for more than four years, hidden away from the world in Reyes’ back yard—until now. Albert Reyes is a Los Angeles-based artist whose hyper-realistic yet dreamlike drawings address themes both personal and cultural. His canvas has ranged from recycled hardcover book covers to public sidewalks, where his beer spit drawings drew national media attention along with original illustrations and prints by Reyes are also on display. Check out more images from his maze as well as a video shot by Graham when the maze was still in its original habitat.

Dutch designer Felix Weigand’s beautiful typography. I love the way his print work is documented. It’s difficult to translate the medium and temporality of paper and folds but he does it very well.
Clean, beautiful, and informative packaging design by Audree rethinks those nutritional figures we always take for granted. If everything we ate had this sort of packaging, would we still be eating it? Is ignorance bliss??
