Sculptures Made Out of a Single Paper Sheet

by  on  • 1:18 pm

Peter Callesen (born 1967) is a Danish artist who makes incredibly complex and beautiful  sculptures out of a single sheet of paper. He has an exceptional talent in combining the minimalism of a big crisp white sheet of paper with the complexity of meticulously cut and folded paper and uses the two to build out some really beautiful compositions.[1]

“A large part of my work is made from A4 sheets of paper. It is probably the most common and consumed media used for carrying information today. This is why we rarely notice the actual materiality of the A4 paper” says Peter.
