At first glance these look like they might be intricate ink drawings, but look a little closer and they are revealed to be incredibly fine paper cuts.
This is the work of Hina Aoyama, a Japanese artist living and working in Paris. On her website she says:
“I am trying to create a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and to produce my own world through super fine lacy paper cuttings.”
She makes her work with a simple pair of scissors. The patience and vision that go into her work is stunning.
Have a lovely Tuesday,
