Paper Sculpture Art – 30 Amazing Designs

paper sculptures

When we think about paper sculpture, the first thing that comes to mind is origami.

Origami is the famous Japanese art of paper folding, or papercrafting, an art form old of centuries, as the oldest known origami dates back to the 6th century A.D.

So as we have seen the concept of creating art with cut paper is very old, and with the invasion of the graphic design world by digital tools like Photoshop, this form of art has become some way put aside.

As many times happens, the new comes in and the old just disappear, or at least is swept under the rug.

That’s the case until a bunch of intrepid artists decided to merge modern design with an ancient tecnhique and revive an old form of art.

In fact, paper craft is not going away anytime soon.

Today we showcase the work of some of the best paper sculpture artists, with the hope of inspiring more people to engage in this ancient art form.

The first artists we’re going to show are Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann, a couple of young designers based in France:
