Paper engineering & pop-up art with unexpected, surprising effects and with abstract compositions

Museum card series

Each card with matching colourful envelope

Objets trouvés is a work of paper engineering which invites us to discover painted figures, unusual drawn objects, forming a composition in relief. The colorful images represented are heterogeneous, and at fist glance, unrelated to each other. Their representation questions us, like in a rebus, the accumulation and the meaning of the images produce when openning the card, an unexpected and surprising effect, evoking an imaginery museum, with a strong poetic charge.

"I wanted to engineer a series of pop-up cards which are like abstract compositions filled with optical illusion & trompe-l'oeil effects. The cards are made of one single piece of paper cut & folded in a manner that there is no waste and a perfect harmony of positive and negative."

Gérard Lo Monaco, born in Argentina in 1948, is a highly accomplished illustrator and paper engineer living in Paris. He has been an art director at some of the most prestigious illustrated publishing houses. His work includes poster designs, album covers and favorite pop-up books for children such as Le Petit Prince, A Train Journey and Moby-Dick.
