SPOTLIGHT ON AKA

july 2015

Meet Kristen Sgalambro!

Digital Designer, AKA NYC

 

I grew up scrapbooking and creating handmade cards, which began my interest in paper art. From there I attended FIT, where I majored in Illustration. When I was at school, I always wanted to incorporate paper into my art; I love the depth that layered paper creates and how the changes in light over the course of a day can changes the shadows in my illustrations. My biggest paper inspirations are Brittney Lee, Owen Gildersleeve and Jared Andrew Schorr. My latest project can be seen on Instagram: I’m creating a paper fruit or veggie each day for 100 days as part of the #the100dayproject. Along with paper illustration, I also paint window murals on the weekend for the Sheepshead Bay Movie Theater in Brooklyn. Come see all the latest blockbusters in mural form!
