Mlle Hipolyte is an illustrator and paper designer. This artist’s collection of 3D animal masks make for a delightful photographic series. Mlle Hipolyte says, “I like working on animalistic designs, because they are very inspiring in their diversity.” Adding, “The paper is a very good material, it allows me to play with colors and shapes.”
The animals range from tigers to foxes and includes a couple of majestic birds. The meticulous assembly of so many small pieces of paper into large masks is inspiring! Each piece of paper has been carefully cut and sometimes folded to aid the 3D look.
The overhead photographs gives these art pieces the illusion of being trophies. The bird masks though are mounted as such. Beautiful creations indeed where no animals were harmed in the process!
