Raya Sader Bujana makes paper sculptures dedicated to food. Made with bold color palettes and finely cut to add texture and details, the Lebanese-Venezuelan paper artist take food art to a whole other level.
Currently based in Barcelona, Bujana took to paper art after dropping out from architecture studies. “I started working with paper and cardboard back when I was studying architecture,” Bujana recalled in an interview with The Creators Project on Vice.
She has since created stop-motion videos and commissioned pieces and sculptures, and has worked with brands like Camper and DOIY. “Paper has always been one of my favorite mediums to work with, I find it graceful and endlessly versatile,” she explained. “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.”
“I like observing and giving my own interpretation of simple everyday things,” she added. “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!”
