From Urban Omnibus - “Yumiko Matsui is a New York-based paper artist who was trained as a painter in her hometown of Osaka, Japan. Her project Coney Island, created in 2009, depicts the amusement park in minute detail and at a miniature size — it measures less than four square-feet and is just over a foot tall. ”
Su Blackwell made these strange mixed media + photoshopped Wizard of Oz diorama-like art pieces for Harrods Magazine last year. Also one for the Nutcracker, which sadly is a bit blurry.

Artist Turns Fast Food Trash into Delicate Paper Trees
Artist Yuken Teruya has managed to turn the grease-stained brown paper bags from McDonalds into beautiful, delicate paper forests.
In the Notice-Forest series, Teruya cuts one side of a paper bag in a tree shape. The cut-out tree is folded down so that it appears to be part of a diorama to onlookers who look inside the bag.Teruya reclaims paper bags back into what they once were–trees.
Cecilie Ellefsen is a Norwegian illustrator and animator with a fine talent for creating intricate dioramas made of paper and plastic. Her work incorporates brightly colored cutouts of animals, forests, and mythical creatures. Her compositions pose a lot of depth, and they’re so fun to look at (especially when they’re lit!)
scandinavian design FTW.
