Obsessive Cut-Paper Artworks by Artist Calvin Nicholls

Nicholls5

Amazing work by paper artist, Calvin Nicholls. Carefully formed from an initial hand-drawn template, the haut-relief effect is achieved through a meticulous process involving X-ACTO knives, scalpels, scissors, glue, and of course, a whole lot of time. A single piece can take weeks, and for the more elaborate ones, years to complete! More images below.
