When you’ve finished with your toilet rolls, you normally recycle them right?
Not for painter, Anastassia Elias.
Equipped with a scalpel, laying down her usual brush and palette, Elias carved miniature intricate scenes inside empty toilet paper tubes. She titled her creative series,“Rouleaux,” and published the results in a book under the same name. Included are 67 of her original works from 2009 – 2012.
Elias has also sculpted dancing ballerinas, cirque performers, and a Mexican mariachi band into her cardboard canvases, not to mention a menagerie of animals.
