It only takes a single piece of paper for this artist to create beauty
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News
Sep 27, 2016
“Whether it's Greek sculpture or Renaissance paintings, paper cutting might not be the first thing you think of when you hear the word "art." The work of Pippa Dyrlaga, an artist from Yorkshire, UK, might just change that. While completing her master's degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, Dyrlaga "stumbled across" paper cutting, and it has now been her passion for seven years. SEE ALSO: 'Jeff's Table' showcases the majesty and artistry of toasting frozen waffles "It was the first time I felt that a medium was truly right for me," she confessed on her website. Inspired by animals, nature and her surroundings, Dyrlaga allows emotion to guide her as she carefully crafts each new work of art, permitting them all to be one-of-a-kind. Amazingly, each piece is cut by hand, and can take anywhere between one and 100 hours to create. "I get asked a lot why I spend all that time cutting them out instead of using a computer, but to me that's the difference between a product and a piece of art, it is a one off," the artist told Mashable . Beyond her paper cutting art, Dyrlaga is an illustrator who displays her work on bearfollowscat.com . You can see more of her paper cutting on Instagram, where she documents her work in progress, or her regularly updated Facebook page.
