Estonian illustrator, art director and graphic designer Eiko Ojala uses the digital paper-cut illustration technique by applying an authenticity of light, shadow and texture to digital compositions. “These artworks appear to be built from cut paper but are created using the likes of Photoshop – though sometimes incorporating elements created from ‘real’ paper and then photographed or scanned. They often blend in illustrated or photographic elements in a way that would be impossible – or at least very time-consuming – using ‘true’ papercut techniques, and of course – as with all digital forms – they’re easier to alter as you go or in reaction to client responses.” – DigitalArts
“New York” is an artwork for the Affina Hotel Manhattan lobby.
