Dark Paper Glamour

I'm not sure if I've shown you Swedish paper artist Fideli Sundqvist's work before... but I certainly should have. I've enjoyed following her work which has recently gone from being very cutesy to glamour. She has definitely taken her work to another (DRAMATIC) level since graduating from art school, but of course still keeping her signature fun twist. I love these 3D still life works she's done for newly opened Stockholm located restaurant 1900. I know you know I'm a sucker for all thing pretty and pastel, but the work and craftsmanship behind these dark dramatic works are just stunning and impressive. They look like dark still life oil paintings from centuries past. I also adore the sweet bug details as well.

Have a look!

Wow, these are impressive! They're so intricate, I would have never known that they were paper! Thanks for sharing, probably wouldn't have seen this otherwise!

Also... in did you know that you spelled Envy "Evny" in that first image of the post? Not sure if you did it on purpose or not!

Such lovely illustrations on your website <3

HI Amber thanks so much for pointing out the typo, hate when that happens!

Also glad that you enjoyed her work. I can't even image how much time these must take... plus they are so perfect! xo
