Diana Beltrán Herrera

Columbia born artist Diana Beltran Herrera created these incredibly realistic paper bird sculptures.  The Bristol-based designer has created over 100 species of birds using paper, cardboard, plastic, wire and paint. She has a BA degree in industrial Design at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogota, Colombia and has an MA in Fine Arts from the University of the West of England.  On an interview with Flow Magazine she says this about her process:  “

“I really got to ‘know’ the birds: I collected a lot of photos and I studied them in books. I made an archive with different views, colors and special information. To make them, I first choose a profile and draw them — the wings, the feet, the face — in Illustrator. My work is half digital, half handmade. I print everything and cut it before I put it together. It takes me at least four days to make one bird.”

Her work can be seen in her website, Facebook and Instagram.

Lisa Breslow

Loving these cityscape and still life paintings created by Lisa Breslow.  The New York-based artist was born in Long Island and studied at the School of Visual Arts and Art Students League on a Merit Scholarship.  The impressionistic oil paintings depict New York City streets through changing seasons with just the right blend of realism and abstraction.  They are not literal portrayals but rather an atmospheric presentation of the bustling city through mood, energy and light.   

You can view more of her work on her website, Facebook and Instagram.
