Whether working on walls, canvas, record sleeves, or any other number of commissions, Alexey Luka’s distinct style set’s itself self apart as immediately recognisable.

Using cut outs, found objects, or simply paint, unique shapes and patches of negative space are carefully slotted together to form whirling vortexes of form.

A guarantee of paper cuts must be part of the job for paper sculptor, Lydia Kasumi Shirreff. Precision with a blade is a must, as is an apparent and intoxicating love of colour and pattern.

We like the mixture of cut-up, found textures and drawing in South Korean illustrator, Gwen Lee’s work. The blending of the two techniques makes a nice contrast for the two styles, making both catch the eye even more. As well as the found paper surfaces that have their own patterns, Gwen also uses her own marks on the paper before cutting them up, following through with the hand-drawn feel in the collage. She tells us more.
