Incredible 3D mosaics made from paper standing on end

At first look, perhaps you didn’t even see it. From a thumbnail view it’s hard to tell. But that beautiful mosaic is made of more than just ink. Yulia Brodskaya is a Russian-born artist with a particular talent mostly abandon by the time you leave grade school. She creates incredibly detailed and colorful portraits, logos, and whimsical doodles, out of standing strips of paper.

Her process is simple: cut and paste. It’s the imagination bit that’s hard. Brodskaya got her start in the medium when exploring different forms of illustration. Now she’s commissioned to design portraits for big names like Starbucks and Godiva. Her attention to detail and proclivity for bright, expressive colors, makes her a stand out, but it’s her eye for theme and emotion that will keep her around for years.
