We’ve folded paper cranes before but our attempts were never quite as exquisite as these creations from Romanian-based artist Cristian Marianciuc. He has always had an interest in art but has never had any formal training. He challenged himself by creating one crane a day for a year and loved the project so much his collection has grown to over 1000. In Arctic Paper he says this about his his passion:
“To me, origami is very therapeutic and a way to find balance in life. It is a way to silence some voices and make others louder. It is about not doing things on autopilot, but to be involved, in the present.”

The bold graphics and striking colors of these illustrations caught our eyes immediately. They are the work of London-based Swedish illustrator and designer, Sara Andreasson.
She grew up in a small town from which, as she puts it: “I escaped from as soon as I possibly could“. She tells us a lot about herself and her work on an interview with IDOART.DK.
