Thinking about trying our hands at paper cutting. These designs are the works of Japanese cutting artist, illustrator and designer Yuya Takamizawa. His work is influenced by folk art from around the world and Scandinavian design. He creates his work at Atelier Folk where he sells paper cutouts, tenugui (cloth towel), and postcards while his wife sells yeast bread and jam. You can view his work on his website and Instagram. You can also view his wife’s culinary expertise on Atelier Sparrow and on Instagram.

We love folk art but have neglected posting creative talents so today we introduce Romanian illustrator Madalina Andronic, who draws inspiration from traditional fairy tales and Slavic folklore. The illustrations of the Bucharest-based artist is rich in detail, bright colors and patterns. She tells us a little bit about herself on an interview with Krishka-Studio:
“I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, so I guess the art was a sure thing for me. But as a child, I would flirt with other artistic directions too, like dancing or singing or theatre, so there must have been times when “ballerina” or “pop singer” trumped “painter”. However, with time, things cleared up and I decided to give my pencils and papers their rightful place in my heart. Rest assured, I was never a ‘next big thing’ for the science world :)”
You can see more of her work on her website, Facebook, Instagram and Behance.
