Multimedia artist Federico Uribe
Born in Bogota, Colombia, Federico Uribe has not created any traditional painting or sculpture. For his entire artistic career this author all the time is inclining to non-standard materials for creativity. He observes them with care, collects them, sets them side by side and combines them. Meanwhile, the everyday objects turn into real piece of art. And we can only admire such a flight of thought and imagination by Federico Uribe. Indeed, not everyone has such ability to go beyond the modest earthly fantasies. However, if you have one and develop it, you can achieve incredible success.

Paper artist Helen Musselwhite works in her home studio, creating fabulous paper art with an ordinary set of tools. In particular, a table, reference books, lots of discarded scalpel blades and drawers full of paper. The result is impressive. According to Helen, she loves working with paper so much that she can get totally lost in what she is doing. And the time passes for her without noticing. She thinks that paper is a good medium. “As you can make it – as good as your own creativity, and that’s a fantastic challenge”. Her pieces usually start with some quick thumbnail sketch. She enlarges this and works from it. Helen Musselwhite loves to work on large-scale projects for brands and small commissions for private clients.
