About the artist

Marie José Gustave has been combining artistic research and lifestyle to create functional art pieces out of recycled cardboard for more than ten years. Her work, influenced by her Caribbean origins, lies between industrial design and contemporary craft.

Pushing the limits of an under-appreciated material, Marie José creates innovative and decorative home objects that maintain a raw, natural quality. Concerned with craftsmanship, texture, and volume, she makes each one of her objects by hand. Marie is a member of Le Conseil des Métiers d’arts du Québec, and received SIDIM’s (Montreal design show) Excellence Award 2010 for her lamps.

Hypnotic cardboard wall art is made with a thin type of cardboard rolled together giving an hypnotic effect.
