The Paper Artist Collective artists were approached by Excel Blades to create a series of paper sculptures representing their own country.
We have created a collage that represents our traditional artistic heritage.
Our aim is to create a collage which looks like our traditional painting technique: Miniature. The composition has 5 elements in it.
An Ottoman graphic pattern as the sky and a Turquoise water pattern as the background. We placed the Maiden Tower to define the water as Bosphorus. Also added the Tortoise Trainer character from a famous Turkish painter Osman Hamdi Bey. But this time he trains the dolphins of Bosphorus.  

Technique: 2D paper layering
Dimensions: 40cm x 60cm
Hand-cut, Canson paper.
