Such extravagant creativity as leaf carving finds more and more supporters, perhaps due to the simplicity of the materials, or due to the graceful, delicate and fragile result. But the fact is obvious. Most recently, we wrote about carved leaves with curly silhouettes created by the artist LadyTinuz, and today we will talk about Mei Linn Chan and her leafy typography Cut Leaf Typography… The girl lives and works in Malaysia, where she studies at the Faculty of Graphic Design, and leafy typography is a kind of student's hobby, the first steps towards great art. To carve figurines from leaves, you do not need an arsenal of tools and special skills to work with them. A blade or clerical node is enough to cut the paper. With this simple "weapon" Mei Lynn "fights" with the autumn leaves collected in the city park.
The artist not only placed a letter or a number on the surface of the sheet, but also decorated the "canvas" with a carved pattern, combined with natural patterns in the form of veins, and therefore this decor looks very natural and cute. The fragile, thin, neat openwork leaves from the Cut Leaf Typography project are reminiscent of paper-cut snowflakes. Is that green and out of season. Perhaps, in warm countries, where there is no snow, but there is a New Year, and a decorated Christmas tree decorates the premises with just such "snowflakes", not with letters and numbers, but with themed New Year's patterns.
You can get acquainted with the work of Mei Linn Chan on her website.
