i was inspired to attempt Papercutting when I came across the papercut artist Rob Ryan online. He uses a combination of text and image in his work to give a ‘storytelling’ element.
The intricate paper cuts he produces are inspiring and incredible to look at, each one clearly taking a lot of time and patience.
I have worked in the papercut method several times, although in a much simpler way, and have a lot of respect for how much effort Ryan’s work takes him with how fiddly it is.
Ryan is an inspiration to me, in both method and his use of storytelling in art which is one of my favourite things about illustrations, and each of my pieces has a narative considered when I create it, whether obvious to the person viewing the image or not.
