Antonius-Tín Bui


Admiring this series of cut-paper posters confronting silent issues of being a model minority.  They are the creations of Antonius-Tín Bui who proudly identifies as a queer, gender-nonbinary Vietnamese-American artist. He has received fellowships from various art institutes and has exhibited at several venues.  In an interview on the Curator Site he say this about why he makes art:

“I still find myself waking up every morning with more questions and doubts than answers. Art has been a vehicle for me to connect with my multifaceted identities in meaningful ways. It has allowed me to collaborate with community members who challenge me to expand my ways of thinking, seeing, moving, tasting, hearing, etc.” 

“I identify as an artist because the label is constantly in flux, allowing me to define and redefine my role on my own terms. When I say I make art, I mean I am an activator, educator, community builder, maker, performer, connector, lover, etc.”


You can follow the artist on his website and on Behance.

Griffin Carrick


Interior designer and artist Griffin Carrick creates these quilled paper hangings from her home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Each piece is made of quilled recycled card stock that Griffin hand cuts, rolls, and folds into three-dimensional sculptures. She says this about her incredible art:

“My love of quilling comes from the process of hand cutting, rolling, folding and configuring paper, transforming this two dimensional material into a three dimensional objects including paper tapestries and vessels. The textures, patterns and forms found in the built and natural environments as well as the traditional decorative arts of ceramics and textiles heavily influence my work. Ultimately, my practice is a constant experiment in exploring the three dimensional potential of paper and the unexpected use of this familiar material.”
