Paper Art [via Nina Reznick]

Calvin Nicholls has worked for 25 years to perfect his medium of choice: PAPER

To make the art, he starts by observing real-life animals and their movements.

He takes numerous sketches that he will later use as reference for his paper art.  He then cuts up thousands of tiny pieces of paper and pastes them together to form each animal.

It’s delicate work. He uses X-ACTO knives, scalpels, and scissors in the construction of his critters. His work has been featured in National Geographic, as well as numerous galleries and art shows all over the world.
