Using simple, everyday materials, artist Diana Beltran Herrera crafts creatures that are full of life. She transforms paper, wire, and wood into realistic birds whose detailing is nothing short of incredible. The meticulous paper art features individually cut and scored feathers—mimicking the real thing—that are layered into majestic plumage. Through these rigid and repetitive structures, Herrera still manages to capture the feeling that they could go into flight at any moment.
Liam Wong injects a unique cyberpunk flavour into his images, casting a light upon the dark corners and back alleys that twist throughout Tokyo. His photographs manage to precisely capture the dynamism of the bustling city lit by bright neon signs and artificial lights, making one question the reality depicted in each photograph. With a distinct futuristic feel, most of bWong’s portfolio gives the sense that you were dropped into the middle of a stylish video game set in Japan’s animated capital.
Wong has a keen eye to accompany a talent for composition and lighting, combining the two to produce these vibrant images. As a graphic design director for Ubisoft, Wong is passionate about both gaming and art. He brings this artistic flair to his photographic approach, showcasing the streets of Tokyo from a surreal, computerized perspective.
