Paper Craft by Matthew Sporzynski

September 21st, 2009




These are a few examples of the amazing paper sculptures from Matthew Sporzynski. What he can do with paper and glue is truly awe inspiring, those Oreos look good enough to eat! You probably recognize his work from the incredible pieces he’s done for Real Simple Magazine. I always look forward to each issue to see what he comes up with next.

Sadly I couldn’t find much more on Matthew but that’s not for a lack of trying; he doesn’t have a website, his company Couturier de Cardboard doesn’t have one either and every article on him references the same missing Real Simple gallery. If anyone has pictures of more of his work, share in the comments and I’ll add them!

    Wow these are amazing! That popcorn is unreal. And you’re right, I absolutely recognized them as Real Simple-esque. Crazy to have such an identifiable style from your work with paper.

    hello. i came across this post and thought i’d share another paper artist, makiko azakami. her paper toys are really sweet, and it’s hard to believe all the detail she achieves in the pieces, which are often less than 3″ big.

    I am a Real Simple magazine subscriber and they created a gallery of his work on this site. They sent it in an email just this week!

    Here’s the link!

    I went to middle- and high-school with Matt, and I’m so impressed with how he has created an amazing artistic career for himself. Though one of my favorite memories is when I encountered him in the hall with paint up to his elbows after he’d been painting part of a set blue (for a school play), and he announced (with a wry grin) that he felt like he’d been strangling Smurfs.
