Wood can be sculptured, cement can be sculptured, even a temporary thing like Ice could be sculptured, but another sculpture in teh name of  Peter Callesen just want to put everything into paper… I mean sculptured paper.

This new kind of very creative paper art called the “paper cut sculpture” is something everyone would be fascinated in. Who would every think paper cuts could look this good.

When asked about how he came up with the idea, Peter Callesen said: My paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping.

Magic Indeed. Here’s more of his works:

So if you’ve been a master (or have gone tired) of the old Origami tricks which already have over and over, I suggest you try this one.

Tip: practice with scratch papers, and make sure they are not contracts or any of your mom/dad’s important documents. That’s just not gonna give you any credit.

3 Critical:

  1. No Prints – I guess this art is at it’s best when you use white paper. But I’m not sure.
  2. Not Easy – this art is definitely not as easy as it seems.
  3. One Genius Guy – my hands are down to the sculpture.  This is just amazing and inspiring.
