Alia Bright’s Paper Art Plays with Perspective, Shadow, and Light

Alia Bright love for shape, typography, and color shines through her artwork. Based in Portland, the graphic designer and paper artist makes colorful creations that play with perspective, shadow, and light.

Known as paper quilling, each of her pieces is made from paper and glue, with different weights and stocks often used in combination. Every strip of paper is first cut to fit, shaped individually by hand, and assembled into intricate shapes and forms.

“I try to maintain the right level of stylistic simplicity while still creating visual interest through color, pattern, and shadows,” she told Colossal.
