Monday Inspiration From Paper Artwork
"Paper art started more than a thousand years ago in Japan. It is an area of design that involves everything from book carving, origami art to complicated paper cutting. Paper sculptures on the other hand are artworks that were made through the combination of different kinds of paper and require extreme precision. In contrast with Origami, sculptures made of paper are composed of several papers instead of one. In this form of art, the subject is the paper – anything else is merely tools.
When talking about paper art or sculpture, most people automatically think of sketching, painting or drawing. This is not entirely true though as there are talented and creative people who create unusual art from paper. This involves folding, carving and cutting. The material used ranges from entire books to ordinary paper. The intricate designs that have been created graced many exhibitions and museums all over the world, and have become another method of expression for many designers.
To let you see what these artists can do to an ordinary paper and to inspire you, I have collected some of the most amazing paper art and paper sculptures for your enjoyment.
