Anastassia Elias and the "Rolls" Royce of Paper Sculpture

Monday, January 16, 2012
From the most miniscule things, art can be created to give beauty in many ways. A lot of the things we think of as garbage or residue are actually capable of becoming something much more than the trivial purpose we give them. Take this example of sculpture media by Anastassia Elias: toilet paper tube as scenic displays of art and creativity. Today's green movements influence every field of design- including sculpture, and what better way to promote a better earth than to create something beautiful our of something that's usually thrown away.



A great mixed media artist in her own right, Elias showcases a wonder of fine and brilliant thought by transforming value in the most simplest of items. Being a collage artist and painter from France, Elias is probably aware of the traditional fine and classical motif that surrounds French art, however the mere fact that she forgoes the traditional for the contemporary makes her one of our favorite modern artists for 2012. Paper sculptures are not new in the art circles, however innovative uses for them is definitely something to look into. We hope to find more brilliant masterpieces by Elias in the near future.
