Papershapers Update – Richard Sweeney

Here’s some of the latest work from 2009′s Papershapers artist, Richard Sweeney. Breathtaking.

I can only imagine how beautiful these are in person. Life-sized, meticulously crafted, and set in a venue of big stone pillars and stained glass — gorgeous. No doubt they stole the show, which was inspired by the London Olympics. There are more photos of his piece in this story, and be sure to check out Sweeney’s website to see what he’s been up to since we saw him in Culver City. Flashback to Eric’s reflections of what was a fantastically diverse show that got people excited, involved and crafting all night long!

It’s a good feeling to come across stories like these about the talented people that Giant Robot has had the privilege to work with over the years. (Plus, I really love pretty ponies.)
