Paper Cuts

Paper art has come a long way since I was a kid, mucking around with my dainty quilling strips and mache. Here's a tribute to the serious guys who know when to scrunch or fold -

Papier Shroom

French artist Vincent Floderer takes sheets of paper and by a means of wet folding and crumpling, makes organic forms of mushrooms and coral.

Love the strong relationship between positive and negative space and how everything is used in telling the story. I'm a big fan of the narrative in an artwork.


Paper Couture. Always great to see art and fashion in a mash-up Robert Ryan is just too good.

I guess I really appreciate the delicacies and strength in these paper artist's works. My goal is to emulate the same lightness that paper holds into the harder metals of jewellery. Something to think about for my final year of art school.


  1. Lovely post - great compilation of paper inspiration.

  2. Thank you :) There are so many great paper artists around right now, I couldn't fit them all in. Paper cuts might have to become a regular segment on this blog!
