Diana Beltran Herrera, a Bristol-based artist and designer, cuts and manipulates paper to create beautiful sculptures and images.
Herrera’s work seems to mostly focus on flora and fauna with birds being her star subject in which she utilises the positives of the medium perfectly. Playing with shapes, textures and colours create for an effective visual language. Moreover, due to the 3D nature of her work, she is able to move it around and play with the angles and composition for her images to get the most out of them. Ultimately her technique and mediums display these paper cut recreations in a very bold and editorial way reimaging what is real through a very playful almost toy-like aesthetic it leaves you bewildered to think that they are made out of paper.
