Lyndi Sales’ Paper Phantasms

Lyndi Sales is a fantastic paper artist, based in Cape Town, South Africa. She covers all the bases of the paper arts - sculpting books, paper cuts, collage dioramas, large scale installations - from abstract to realism. Some are other worldly looks into parallel universes, some are intricate, detailed creatures or anatomical parts and some are movement-inspired blurs of surreal abstract shapes.
