Today, I’m thrilled to bring you the surrealist paper art by Berlin-based artist Andrea Wan. The artist makes beautiful 3-D collages from her own handpainted watercolor images. Wan says her works are meant to convey love and optimism. We could certainly all use a bit more of that!
I am intrigued by Wan’s fascination with hands, and I especially love her technique of bending and curling her painted elements before they are glued down to give her work an extra element of surprise and realness. There’s a great video of her demonstrating her process here.
