I saw last February on Wooster Collective some interesting and creative sculptures made by the urban sculptor Nick Georgiou. This New York artist creates strange creatures out of the stitched folds of thousands of discarded newspapers. Just amazing! You must to visit his blog: Nick Georgiou

Click on photos to enlarge


  1. Wow! That is neat - and you've captured them very nicely.

  2. Lots of work to get a reaction. I liked the reaction of the man walking the dog. And the dog was also looking.

  3. Those are definitely unique in the world of sculpture. It's just so interesting to see what creative minds come up with!

  4. Sonia, dear, what a fabulous find! Georgiou's work is remarkable. Wow! I love the way the doggy in the third photo looks a that very strange creature :). Photo #8 is very cool too. Thanks for sharing this!

    Have a great week ahead. Hugs. :)

  5. Sonia, you've done it again!
    Where do you find these things?
    Incredible work but a bit creepy.
    Imagine the time that went into creating them.

  6. Very interesting sculpture! out of newspaper no less...some people are very creative..

  7. As a journalist, Mr. Georgiou's work touches me very, very deeply. Thank you for sharing his genius with us. I wish I could encounter his work spontaneously on the street!

  8. These are really quite remarkable works of art. Very creative and highly inventive. The facial features, especially the eyes, are very arresting. Excellent find Sonia.

  9. Grande achado, Sonia. Muito criativa a escultura, e muito boa sua postagem.

    Bjs e boa semana.

  10. How fabulous! This sort of reminds me of the books that book artists often create, using materials that one does not often associate with books. I love the one of that dog freaking out at the sculpture, lol.

  11. oh what a curious guy - - i love the photos of him among people passing by.

  12. These are WONDERFUL, Sonia....So imaginative...and he gets so much "feeling" into each piece----it is almost scary...! You find the BEST Artists Sonia....Amazing!

    Thanks soooo very much for your very dear sweet comment on my Anniversary...I feel the same way and so appreciate all the wonderful people I have met out here in Blofland---YOU, being one of the very dearest ti me.

  13. I had never heard or seen these before, so I'm glad you did a post on the topic. I'm not sure I care for the creatures aesthetically, but I do think they're fun!

    Thanks for your comment on my Villigen blog.

  14. Sonia, impressionante. Criatividade e talento, sem discussão.
    Boa semana para voce.
    Beijo, menina

  15. These are really amazing! Thanks for your comments on my blog.

  16. Sonia, This is just expressive!! what is the story behind it..? was there any public-art festival/contest..??....luv this art!!!

  17. Wow! How amazing! I cannot imagine the patience involved in making these creatures. Great photos.

  18. I knew furniture made of corrugated paper but nothing about animals made of newspapers! They are wonderful in my opinion.
    And happy belated anniversary to your blog, Sonia! Thank you for visiting mine so often!

  19. Sonia querida, não há dúvidas, que existem pessoas que tem o dom da transformação né?
    São peças lindas, de muito bom gosto, e o que mais impressiona, é com certeza a criatividade.
    Puxa, prá se chegar nisso, a cabeça voou, e o artista há de se orgulhar, e muito, do resultado.
    Um beijo e uma linda semana prá vocês.

  20. WoW...some beautifully captured shots...very well spotted & really very creative...EXCELLENT!

  21. Thank you for the smile of the day! Such interesting sculptures. :-)

  22. Sonia,
    toda vez que vc some, tem novidades no horizonte!!!!!


  23. Only in New York City!!!

    Very interesting, Sonia. I wouldn't say it's beautiful art, but interesting.

    His fingers must be black. I can't stand the feel of newspaper... :o)

  24. Sonia, sensacional as "esculturas" do artista Nick Giorgiou, em Nova Yotk, feitas de papel de jornal.
    Como sempre, excelente bom gosto nos seus posts.
    Um abraço, e até mais.

  25. These are really nice Sonia, my son was curious and asking questions, watch, he'll try something next week, hehee, he loves paper things. Take care!

  26. Very original! One way to recycle paper ;-)

  27. Amazing art! Came over here from Cathy's glad to see such wonderful photos!

  28. I know Arnaldo Pomodoro's art and job. Honestly I find his job mono-theme. By the way the art is pure.

    Of course, as Italian, let me say I prefer to see photos about your country and / or concerning your culture, use and tradition.

    Ah... Didn't ring your ears? (We are used to say that when someone seems "to think" to us). I was in Lisboa the first week of the month and I have to say I love so so much Portuguese. Maybe Brasilian is a bit different from Portuguese spoken in Portugal by the way your language is so... Intriguing if listened by an italian. We may understand some words reading it but not listening it. Then Lisboa is ssssooo beautiful. I hope one day to visit Brasil too !!!

  29. Thanks for all the comments. Keep up the great blogging Sonia, You've created a great virtual community here. Those new trees are tremendous!
