Amazing Papercut Illustration and Process Video by Piko


Inspired by the Herbariy project, “I WILL MAINTAIN” takes the initial idea of interpreting official coats of arms of other states in a decidedly different direction – one that aims to test the boundaries of craft. The whole process lasted 6 months, including design, multi-stage manufacturing of details, assembly, construction, photography and final edit. The process was continuously recorded, resulting in over 16,000 shots compiled in the video that you can watch above.

Illustrator: Ivan Belikov / Further Up
Craft & Photography: Piko and Beauty & the Beast Studio
Team: Olga Cebanu, Cristina Cornileac, Nastea Colesnicov,
Constantin Sarcov, Eugen Catruc and Sandu Cojocari.
