Here at MobiSpirit we’re fans of both paper art and food art, so when heard of an artist who combines both of our passions we couldn’t help but be excited. Raya Sader Bujana recreates anything from pumpkin pies to a refreshing glass of pink lemonade, using exclusively paper.
“I like observing and giving my own interpretation of simple everyday things,” Bujana explained in an interview with Vice. “I think observation is a powerful tool for creativity. I can be looking at something as simple as a slice of cucumber, my house plants, the latte I’m having, a camera or a person doing gymnastics and think ‘Hey, this could look great made out of paper!’ and so I make it!”
Having studied architecture, she’s influenced by her professional background, as well as her love of nature. “I started working with paper and cardboard back when I was studying architecture,” recalled the Lebanese-Venezuelan artist. “Paper has always been one of my favorite mediums to work with. I find it graceful and endlessly versatile. Paper can be layered, shaped, cut, folded, colored, sculpted, so it’s full of possibilities, the more I experiment with it the more possibilities I see.”
Aside from her food paper art she has also created stop-motion videos and commissioned pieces and sculptures, and has worked with brands like Camper and DOIY. Check out some of her unique designs in the gallery below:
