This new book titled Paper Cutting, Contemporary Artists, compiled by Laura Heyenga (Chronicle Books), is a wonderful showcase of raw talent in the field of cut paper artwork. Particularly exciting is the fact that our very own Capetonian illustrator Heather Moore, aka Skinny laMinx, is one of the 26 featured artists hailing from all corners of the globe.
The incredible collection of images demonstrates the ability of these artists to create intricate little masterpieces from little more than cut paper. An introduction by paper art fundi Natalie Avella delves into the history of this age-old art form, outlining the impressive accuracy and detail that it requires. Other stars making an appearance include Nikki McClure, Rob Ryan, and Thomas Allen. We love how Heather is representing SA! More about Skinny laMinx here.
