Paper art can be traced back to Japan, where it originated over a thousand years ago.

From complex paper cutting to book carving, this is an ever expanding area of design that is hardly talked about.

These intricate paper designs grace museums and exhibitions throughout the world and is becoming yet another exciting medium of expression for many designers.

Some of the artists featured here use simple materials, such as A4 printing paper, while others resort to unexpected materials, such as actual books, as their prime materials.

In this article, we’ll take a look at 13 remarkable artists and showcase their truly amazing pieces of paper art.

I’m speechless.... I looked over Peter Callesen’s site. I’d certainly like to see him at work on the paper cuttings. :-)
