Sabeena Karnik makes typographic illustrations with paper using a style mainly called quilling and paper sculpturing. A true master in her technique, the Mumbai based artist has specialised in using only paper and glue making layers, strips and patterns to create intricate, colourful and playful three-dimensional works that have been commissioned by the likes of Instagram, Google, Porsche, Adobe, Disney publishing worldwide, to name a few. The works are all handmade by playing with organic forms of the material and a vibrant colour palette to make pieces that stand out for their complexity and delicacy. Her artworks aim to evoke a sense of surprise and wonder in the eyes of the viewer. The effect of light falling on this 3D art is captured in the form of a photograph and eventually used commercially. She is most often inspired by natural elements and textures which regularly make an appearance in her work.
