paris based artist anastassia elias typically works in the mediums of painting and illustration, but she recently undertook a new project of silhouettes encased inside toilet paper rolls. the on-going series consists of toilet paper tubes that have been filled with layers of cut paper silhouettes that come to life with the addition of a simple light. elias cuts the paper shapes out using a paper very close to the toilet roll and uses tweezers to manipulate the shapes inside. elias explains that each piece take a few hours to complete because of the intricate cutting and the small scale of the project.
