For most of us our paper work skills are limited to folding a crappy dart that always nose-dives to the floor, anything more is out of our league. But it’s amazing what can actually be achieved with paper alone and artist Jonathan Brand is going to prove it.
Brand is a pro artist and likes working with a variety of mediums, but he is most skilled when it comes to handling paper. Turns out that Brand is also a car guy and, like many, is particularly fond of the 1969 Ford Mustang. Bringing his passion for cars and paper together in a way that only a skilled artist can, Brand has set about the task of building the full-scale Ford entirely out of paper. Not just the shell either, this is a full replica including every single part which will be created in paper.
So far, the Brooklyn, New York-based artist has finished the engine, one wheel and tire, and one of the doors. But what is most amazing is the detail, the engine alone is a highly accurate art piece. It’s sure going to be a while before Brand is finished on the iconic pony car but when he’s done expect it to be a tree-born wonder. (more…)
