Etsy Shop – New Works 014

New Collection!

I am into experimenting a lot in these last months, so I thought to share the final results with you. These pieces are part of a series called “Raw Cuts“, available on my Etsy store. Below a little intro about it.

About the Series
Raw Cuts Series is born to give space to my numerous vintage and found paper scraps collected in years. I wanted to give justice to all these leftovers in my personal way, creating small format collages full of bold colours. I also decided to choose a particular surface for these art pieces, a 150 gsm handmade paper made from recycled cotton rag. I believe that this kind of paper goes well with the final concept of this art project.

Inspiring!

This week I show you the coloured, funny and provocative paper interventions by the Peruvian artist Kike Congrains.

I love the way how vintage and found paper cuts are put together to create original and unique collage works.

Society6 Art Print – Review And Giveaway

Yay!


Naomi_Vona_Society6_Art_Print_Giveaway_005

Last month I wanted to order a large sized art print from my Society6 shop. I previously just ordered a tote bag and I was pretty happy about the final result, but I was really curious to see how they manage “classic” art prints on paper.

I was a little bit disappointed with the service. The order was done on the 13th of December, the tracking system was stuck on the 16th of December for about 20 days.  Once I contacted the customer service (on the 4th of January), the order appeared as arrived from the US to the UK, and was delivered a couple of days later. By the way, I can understand that there were the Christmas holidays in between, so this can happen easily during this time of the year.

The print colors are really bright and I love the thickness of the paper and its matt finish. There is a little crease into an angle of the print but luckily it’s in the white border, so the print itself was not compromised.

The packaging was good, the print arrived rolled into a thick cardboard tube fixed with plastic caps on both sides. The ruined angle is due to the fact the during the transportation the tube was slightly deformed. So let’s say that at the end I was very happy for the print but not so happy for the wait time.

And now, it’s time to give it away!

The art print is called “Il Martirio di Caterina da Siena” (Caterina from Siena’s Martyrdom) and is about one of my collages done on vintage vinyl covers. The size of the print is 22 x 22 inches (about 55 x 55 cm), so it’s pretty big.

To participate it’s super simple: leave a comment below this post and you will get the chance to win the print! The deadline is Sunday 31 of January 2016, I will draw the winner the day after using Random.org.

Good luck!

Australian Birds by Marine Coutroutsios

Lovely!

The French artist and designer Marine Coutroutsios realized this gorgeous series called Australian Birds. Marine was truly inspired by Australian nature (she is based in Sydney), and she wanted to celebrate the colorful combinations of the birds from this country.

The result is an abstract paper sculpture series, full of vibrant and wonderful colors.
