Eiko Ojala is a talented artist whose artworks look like they were handcrafted. He uses digital technology to make his images. However, the creations look like paper cuts made with colorful paper and scissors.
Ojala is a well-known illustrator, graphic designer, and art director from Estonia whose works were published in media all around the world. Like, for example, his digitally done paper cuts inspired by the pandemic were featured on the cover of TIME magazine. But he was also featured in many other publications, websites, blogs, and newspapers.
He begins his project with an idea transmitted onto a blank sheet. When the sketch is done he transfers his hand-made work to the digital world.
“Within my work process, I like to study the forms of shapes and to work closely with light and shadow. I like to keep my illustrations minimal and well-advised. I combine consummate craftsmanship with a healthy sprinkling of wit,” Ojala told The Huffington Post.
Every “paper cut” is done with so much precision. The artist seeks inspiration from events that affect us all. From the pandemic and global warming crisis to problems that humans are dealing with daily.
