Peter Callesen: Papercut Sculptor and Installation Artist

For all those interest in intricate paper cutting and installations where paper is main, even sole, medium of the work, I give to you D
Papercut Sculptor and Installation Artist Peter Callesen! I believe that his works will greatly inspire all sculptors around through his immense skill to morph paper into literally any conceivable thing. Now to morph paper is not a simple task, and to those who have not heard of him before, I believe he will be one of your inspirations for future works.

We think of paper very much as a two-dimensional medium by both artist and viewers, rarely manipulated, rarely anything more than a canvas to be drawn but not morphed. We see clay, sand, even dough as malleable materials in art, to mould and morph, to take on the shape of what we conceive and desire people to perceive. but not paper. However, Peter Callesen is no such person. He has a great eye for detail and each cut he makes has a carries a degree of precision that, at times, seems beyond the humanly possible. There is an awe-inspiring beauty in each delicately cut out piece. It is something that is not bound by size, medium or colour, but rather skill and planning that brings forth such the potential of the overlooks medium of paper. Each creation tests the limits of the material, and each idea stretches the imagination of viewers.

Here are some of his works that have really inspired me, especially when I use paper and similar mediums. All my bottle works could be said to take inspiration for his collection of masterpieces.


He as been a great inspiration to me, particularly over these past few years when I needed to test the depths and limits of the material that we so often overlook.
