Incredible art of papercutting
Undoubtedly, the first who cut paper were the Chinese, just because they invented paper. The art of papercutting later spread to other parts and regions of the world influenced by their own cultural styles.
Meanwhile, all the beautiful paper cutting works of art featured in this post belong to different contemporary authors. In particular, talented and skillful artists Aoyama Hina (Japan), Bovey Lee (China), Elisabeth Bottesi – Fisch (Switzerland), Hunter Stabler (USA), Karen Bit Vejle (Norway), Tomoko Shioyasu (Japan), Ueli Hofer (Switzerland) and many others. I hope they can conquer your hearts the same as they conquered mine.
