Design Studio | Paper Cutting

Paper Installation, Landscape Eddy Fen by Chris Natrop

The art of paper cutting has been around for thousands of years—originating in China in the Han Dynasty, then spreading throughout the world—from 18th-century French silhouette art to Mexican papel picado. There is a resurgence in the art form today as we've seen in the work of Liz Jaff and Megan Brain. Above is an installation piece by Los Angeles-based artist, Chris Natrop. His works on paper are spontaneously created without any preliminary sketches or drawings. We admire his stream-of-consciousness approach. Chris talks about his process here:
