Geode by Paige Smith of A Common Name is a 3D street art project that looks to have been recently excavated. Instead of gold rocks or precious gems, this project revolves around stunning paper art discoveries. Installed around the state of Los Angeles, it has been an ongoing project that explores a new dimension of graffiti works.

Coming in all shapes and sizes, Geode by Paige Smith fits into the nooks and crannies of urban settings. Inspired by natural mineral formations, these works of art become unexpected treasures that will delight visitors and locals alike. Crafted out of cut and painted paper, each one is as vibrant as the next. So far, the American graphic designer and artist has created nine Geode pieces.
