The surreal artwork of Laura Bellmont

I’ve always been an enormous fan of the work of Laura Bellmont. She creates the most engagingly surreal, personal images. Though her work is constantly evolving in many directions, as of now, I’m feeling thoroughly engrossed by her expanding body of pop-ups and black and white drawings. Unfortunately, I must say that her website only provides the smallest inkling of what she can really do (I’m lamenting the tiny black and white drawing section dominated primarily by commercial work). My recommendation would be for anyone lucky enough to be living in the New York area to pay a visit to her Clinton Hill studio (which she shares with husband, illustrator Sam Friedman), where she will most certainly be more than happy to pull out mile high piles of beautiful drawings, puppets, paintings and pop-ups and draw you into her incredible world.
