Eugenia Zoloto

In awe of these large scale paper cuttings of Ukranian artist, Eugenia Zoloto. Her creations are quite intricate and magical with twisting vines, large blooms, birds and flying insects. On an interview with Strictly Paper she says this about her work and inspirations:

“I discovered paper cutting a few years ago, and was impressed by the tender tiny cuts and different ways of using paper. So I immediately tried to do one with simple knife and not the correct paper, the result was ugly, but I loved the process so much – so I began to struggle with this hobby more and more. Soon after I saw a lot of interest from other people and finally turned my hobby into my profession.”

“I’ve read a lot my entire life and I think the main images and ideas were formed from romantic and at the same time dramatic, noir Russian literature. I am still amazed by it. Of course there are many other factors – my life, art, and society influence me as well. I take on inspiration from everywhere – strange dreams, spots on the wall, beautiful songs, etc.”

You can find the artist on Facebook, Behance and Instagram. Some of her designs can be purchased in her Etsy shop, ArtHeartsShop.
