Looking as if the story has risen right out of the page, Su Blackwell’s small sculptures tell fairytale stories. She creates three-dimensional cut paper sculptures out of old books, often using the classic imagery off the page as her subjects. Her works are highly detailed, well planned and sometimes take up to a month to complete.
Blackwell, an artist and art director, has recently worked on advertising campaigns for Volvo, Pilsner Urquell, and Cartier, Paris. For more on her highly original work or to visit her online shop, see her website sublackwell.co.uk.
Su Blackwell demonstrates her technique for the South China Morning Post.
