Welcome in the magical world of paper!
After the traditional Origami and the art of folding paper, which is often associated with Japanese culture, we are currently living in a new era of paper art.
Sculptures, books, illustrations and textures are some of the objects of this paper revolution.
Here some of the most famous and curious Paper Artists.
