These sublime sculptures are the work of Maud Vantours, a designer and artist from Paris, France that is known for her layered paper masterpieces.

With a background in textile design and research, the artist creates graphic compositions that are rich in texture. Her tactile masterpieces are multi-dimensional and capture dreamlike scenes that play with a viewer’s perception.

While she has experimented with sharp, geometric shapes in the past, Maud plays with volume and proportion in her latest series of layered paper compositions that resemble spherical dreamscapes.

This series showcases a spectrum of vivid hues and features 2D constructions that are evocative of landscapes, sunsets and sound waves. These sublime portraits evoke a calm air and are reflective of the artist’s playful aesthetic.
