Skateboard Diorama

Mar 24, 2014

Watch Denver-based Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker build Rise and Skate, a six foot by six foot paper cut light box for skateboard art fundraiser Bordo Bello at the AIGA National Center, New York. On their work, from Black Book:

They started experimenting with paper cut shadow boxes in 2010 with hand painted watercolor paper which was then cut and assembled in a wooden box to create a diorama, with years of practice their art became more intricate and minimal at the same time. They started experimenting with lights and simplified their pieces by losing the colored aspect of the paper. They have since then evolved to add their own style of paper cut art incorporating back-lit light boxes using flexible LED strip lights.
