Aside from origami, paper seems to be the art world’s oft-forgotten medium. Paper illustrator and designer, Chloé Fleury, however, is treating it to a revival of sorts. I stumbled across Fleury’s work through her collaboration with Joy Cho (from acclaimed blog Oh Joy!)- a lighthearted stop-motion piece promoting Blog Inc., Cho’s book on blogging 101. Not only is her work incredibly detailed, and certainly out of the box, but a welcome departure from the standard 2-D format of most illustrators. Although Fleury was fond of origami and constructing boxes out of paper as a child, working with the medium is a somewhat recent venture for the artist. Originally intent on graphic design, Fleury discovered stop-motion while studying at École de Communication Visuelle in Aix-en-Provence, yet it wasn’t until her move to San Francisco four years ago that she revisited paper, drawing inspiration from her lively (and bright) city surroundings. In the time since, Fleury has worked with the likes of Urban Outfitters, Conde Nast Traveler, Warner Bros. Records, Target, and GAP, hoping to soon set foot in set design.
