ArtMeet Paper Artist Elsa Mora

Artist Elsa Mora: Follow this fantastic paper trail¬†and you’ll find yourself admiring the work of artist Elsa Mora, lovingly known as Elsita. Originally from Cuba, now based in Los Angeles, Elsita often includes intricate vines and flowers that twist their way throughout her papercuts, framing fuzzy little characters, storybook girls, and the occasional family tree. The scenes are packed with detail, yet sweet, calming, and charming beyond belief! Elsa is also the mind behind several blogs, including Art is a Way, and All About Papercutting.

ArtRetro Modern: Artist Hiroshi Tanabe

Artist Hiroshi Tanabe combines a retro sense of color and style with meticulous line-work inspired by the traditional woodcut techniques of his native Japan. Punch-colored scenes of women in profile, as well as waves of dragonflies, dancers, and ribbons, exist on flat backgrounds that set the scene for fine waves of hair, and intricate fabric illustration. Tanabe’s career has already spanned two decades, popping up everywhere from Vogue Paris, to Rolling Stone, Anna Sui, and the New York Times.

ArtParadise by Artist Katherine Tromans

What does paradise look like? For artist Katherine Tromans, the subject of her final degree project became a collaboration between herself and the imagination of the people she asked this very question to. Working to literally illustrate others’ ideas of “paradise”, her dreamy pastel-hued paintings culminated in morphed landscapes that are convincingly paradisaical.
