For most people, paper is used in printers, for random notes or occasional doodles. However, artists across the globe are taking the ancient material to a whole new level, fashioning everything from 3D sculptures to intricate cut-outs.
Paper sculpture is very beautiful as shown in these photos.
Among the popular paper sculpture artists are Li Hongbo, Simon Schubert and Bovey Lee.
Cheong-ah aka ‘papernoodle’ uses multiple layers of creased and embossed paper to create quirky sculptures.
Rogan Brown’s work is inspired by the age-old tradition of scientific drawings and model making.
Cheong-ah’s studio is completely void of natural light so that UV rays don’t harm her paper stash.
From plants and birds to shoes and architecture, Cheong-ah manages to capture the complexity of natural and man-made forms.
