Amazing Animal Sculptures Made Out Of Paper

Canadian artist Calvin Nicholls creates extraordinary 3D sculptures using paper. The multi-layered paper sculptures can take anywhere from 4 weeks to 2 years to complete and the process always begins with extensive research of the animals to get their musculoskeletal features correct. Nicholls uses a final drawing as a pattern for the pieces which he carefully cuts out with scalpels and x-acto knives. Finally, he pieces the components together. Nicholls has been a full-time paper sculpture artist since the mid 80s and his work can be found in books as well as private collections and institutions around the world. Nicholls says he enjoys white on white paper sculptures the most due to the emphasis on texture and form. For more, be sure to check out Calvin’s incredible work at his website. – Calvin Nicholls
