Vally Nomidou makes life-size sculptures of human figures using only paper and cardboard.
The internal frames are a vertical and horizontal grid of cardboard to give support to the structure, while the outer “skin” layer is constructed from newspaper, paper towels, handmade paper, and other salvaged materials that have been cut, sewn, glued, and otherwise manipulated for a realistic rendering of her subjects.
Her work has been featured at Art Athina 2010, among others.
