Michael Velliquette’s Cut Color Explosion

I’ve been eyeballing Michael Velliquette’s ultra-detailed cut paper reliefs for a while now and they continually get better and better with every year. Having started with surreal landscapes and figurative narratives his new works pictured here have morphed into self contained, ornamental abstractions that look more like rainbow bright totem poles or stretched out musical instruments that have  just been painted by a psychedelic poster  factory.

Catch these and other works by Michael in NYC from April 2nd-May 8th at DCKT Gallery.

Cut Paper, Part 1

Peter Callesen, "Fall", 2008

You might have already read our series on food artists. B/D has decided to feature another 3-part series on cut paper artists! The art of paper-cutting evolved from the traditional Chinese craft, stretching back to the 6th century. Today, contemporary paper artists have pushed this art-form into focus once again. Armed with their X-Acto knives, (and nail scissors?), these artists have redefined the meaning of intricate. (Some actually believing they’ve only completed a day’s work once their hands shake with fatigue, waking up sore the next morning!) Though it can be frail, finicky, and prone to tearing, their choice of medium is deliberate; they’ve claimed paper as a way of using an ordinary material to express themselves in unconventional ways. Check out the three cut paper artists of the day!

Kako Ueda - Caught

 

Check out Kako Ueda‘s cut paper masterpieces! With each project, she explores her deep interest in organic beings (insects, animals, and humans alike), and weaves them into mind-bogglingly intricate, extraordinarily precise patterns and forms. Her newest work (immediately after the jump!), still in-progress, is a hybrid figure measuring about 7 feet high!
