Rouleaux

Anastassia Elias creates beautiful little worlds inside of loo paper rolls. She uses manicure scissors and a cutter to carve tiny paper shapes of the same color as the roll. She aims to create the illusion that the paper shapes are part of the roll. Afterwards she carefully arranges the paper animals, men, trees, forms and objects inside of the round shape with a tweezer so that they won´t overlap each other and to make best use of the incidence of light. Elias is 36 years old and studied philology and journalism, she lives in Paris and works as a full-time artist and illustrator, focusing mainly on paper collages and paintings.
