Bozka’s Intricate Nature Illustrations and Paper-Cut Works

Polish illustrator Bozena Rydlewska, aka Bozka, draws ornate nature illustrations where flora and fauna come together to form graceful shapes and symmetrical compositions. Bozka's depiction of nature is romanticized and almost fairytale-esque, and she turns some of her 2D works into pop-ups that evoke the 3D effects in some children's books. She often combines floral forms found on land with aquatic life, creating unexpected mash-ups of various ecosystems. Check out some of Bozka's latest works below.

Russian artist Yulia Brodskaya creates playful illustrations, installations and paper cut works using a unique method she developed after leaving her graphic design job in 2006. The artist rolls tiny strips of colorful paper into spirals that she aggregates into larger shapes, creating textural works that lie somewhere on the horizon between two and three dimensions. Her whimsical, springy work invites a sense of optimism. While paper cut art is typically a small-scale medium, Brodskaya often creates mural-sized artworks and installations for commercial clients, using paper to transform rigid spaces into fantastical realms.

Valentin Leonida (Valle) is a Bucharest-born 3D modeler and illustrator whose characters haunt imaginations. In his most recent series, “Heads,” Valle created five images revealing the interior of the human face as it makes emotional expressions. Titled “No.1 Rhinocerus (after Dürer),” “No.2 Melancholia,” “No. 3 Restless,” “No. 4 Concentration,” and “No. 5 Serpent Mind,” the drawings and their evocative labels prompt curiosity. One wonders if the furrowed tension in “Concentration” is revealed on one’s own face, or if the emotional state is only made visible when Valle's golden medical contraption pulls back the skin like a veil.
