Anna-Wili Highfield is undoubtedly entering the top list of my favorite artists. Her paper creatures are like poems, they’re so visually attractive, you can definitely feel the magic!

Anna is based in Sydney and makes animal sculptures from paper and copper pipe. Her figures require both her artistic vision and a definitely challenging procedure in means of craft and technique.

A portfolio I strongly suggest you check out!

Here is this month’s favorite artist : Walton Ford

Also known as ‘Nature Boy’, Ford is an artist that stands out from today’s tendencies in art. No extreme means, no hidden concepts, no shocking themes –well, at least not with a first glance. Take a note of this:

Blending depictions of natural history with political commentary, Ford’s meticulous paintings satirize the history of colonialism and the continuing impact of slavery and other forms of political oppression on today’s social and environmental landscape. Each painting is as much a tutorial in flora and fauna as it is as a scathing indictment of the wrongs committed by nineteenth-century industrialists or, locating the work in the present, contemporary American consumer society.”
