Mandy Smith combines intricate design with a unique craftsmanship in order to create paper sculptures. A perfect example of how the artist combines the fantastical with every day simplicity, there’s something darkly humourous about Mandy Smith and Bruno Drummond’s latest collaboration ‘Uncomfortable Sandpaper Scupltures’. Exactly what it says on the tin, these sculptures depict the everyday objects which, although aesthetically pleasing, don’t necessarily work as sandpaper creations.
Since graduating from Central Saint Martins, Mandy has directed a highly praised short film, made models for the art department on Tim Burton’s ‘Frankenweenie’ and has worked with a variety of clients including Coca-Cola, Waterstones and Velvet. She has also been been picked out as ‘one to watch’ in Creative Review and Frame Magazine.
