Diana Beltran Herrera Turns Paper Into Nature

Jill Harness

When you're swimming in a sea of papers, there is something inherently relaxing about seeing a fish that could easily navigate the ocean of paperwork on your desk.

Of course, Diana Beltran Herrera's paper artwork (which we discovered over at Laughing Squid) doesn't stop with sea life. She's created an entire menagerie from cut, folded and glued pieces of paper in every imaginable color.

The result is an imaginary world that, like the beautiful moon Pandora in Avatar, you can't help but wish was real just so you could trek through it in person.
