Wooden cut-outs provide playful statues

We love the playful feel of these wooden cut-outs

Anything that brightens up a dull space is a winner here at Creative Bloq. Whether it's an example of inspiring street art (opens in new tab) or the latest art installation, we think a splash of colour looks great just about anywhere. So, it's no surprise that we instantly fell in love with this collection from illustrator Nathaniel Russell (opens in new tab).

Creating surreal and often absurd characters and objects, Russell then cuts them out into wooden statues to be placed around various buildings. We love the playful feel of each creation - channelling the child-like creative spark we're all capable of.

Russell is a man of many talents - producing an array of designs including drawings, paintings, prints, records, posters and of course, plenty of illustration. He's a firm favourite here!
