For me paper art meant nothing more than making paper planes and boats, until I saw these intricate paper sculptures and paper cuts by Elsa Mora. The Cuban-born artist is well-known for transforming paper into beautiful, profound and creative.
Harikrishnan Panicker and Deepti Nair create cut paper shadow boxes, illuminated with battery powered lights. amazing graphic illustration style fantasy landscape paper art sculpture work of these artists is breathtaking shadow box play
Book art is a really bittersweet medium for me. I hate to see a book destroyed, on the other hand, the product of that destruction can be spectacular. ALSO - I miss the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Coffee Gallery @ Open Book.
The Hiroko Matshushita The paper-cut book works: I love how this book looks and it's given me inspiration on how to set out my book. I know that I want to do a book with papercut and this looks really good and neat and a unique way of setting out my book.
