Series Artist: Shirley Vuong
Calgary, AB, Canada
Shirley Vuong, also known as “Elsie”, is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Art has always been a big part of her life, through experimenting with different mediums, such as: drawing, painting, graffiti, and cooking. She pushed it further by attending culinary school, and then design school. Inspired by the array of colours and the ability to manipulate and create intricate sculptures, this is where Shirley found her love for tactile design. Her creations are handcrafted and made entirely of paper; they are whimsical, playful and vibrant, with faceted faces. Her work plays on the notion of surprise and encourages thinking outside the box, and aims to embolden others to believe they can create something amazing with as little as a piece of paper.
