Life-like birds by Diana Beltran Herrera
The paper birds by Diana Beltran Herrera are remarkable! For me as a ‘bird lover’ it was like love at first sight. Not only they look exactly like the real ones, the crafting behind it owes respect! Herrera’s work ‘seeks to explore the disengaged relationship between humans and nature in modern society’. The youngster (1987) created bird series from exotic colorful birds, to the humble Dutch sparrow.
I mostly love her project for The Cornell Fine Arts Museum for which she created seven sculptures of local bird species. For this series she even created my most beloved bird: Blue Jay – which is the main character of my newest art painting at home. It’s not a surprise that huge brands have found her talented skills. At the moment Diana is working on display windows for important brands in the fashion industry, along with private commissions. I bet we’ll see more of her in the future as of now she’s still completing her fine arts degree.

They would look amazing inside a cloche!
