Day 1562: Graffiti, newspaper & a samisen ...





"graffiti",  acrylics, collage & digital












I like to feature artist friends work.
Today, I am sharing the amazing work of Chie Hitotsuyama.
I would be proud to call her friend, but I am just a fan. 
This Japanese artist rolls newspaper to 
create incredibly realistic animal sculptures.

 


Densely rolling, twisting, pieces of wet newspaper, the process is done entirely by hand & she even uses the colored print to enhance the contours and gradations of her subjects.

 














 








If time allows there is a beautiful 3 minute video here,
and another 1-1/2 minute video here
 I hope you might have time to view one.










A smile for Friday ...
