Rob Ryan - paper cut artist
I have share this artist, Rob Ryan with you all before, but want to give some more love to him and this art form! I love this! My friend the other day described my style as "folksy, yet modern" and I think she nailed it on the head! Here is some "folksy, yet modern" papercuts for you to enjoy. Here is a post about one of my favorite artists compliments of indiwoman.wordpress.com.
One of the Art techniques that I admire the most is PAPER CUT, create drawings and paintings cutting out the paper up to the milimeter, a traditional practice in China, Centre of Europe and Mexico where precision and attention to detail are the most important facts. One of my favourite artists is ROB RYAN. Born in Cyprus in 1962, he studied art at Nottingham Trent Polytechnic before going on to an MA in printmaking at the Royal College of Art in London, where he actually lives. His work is the result of the hardworking hand of delicate paper cut outs. He first draws or prints the design upon the paper, he after cuts it out with a scalpel and lastly he sprays with paint. Besides his own projects, Rob has collaborated with the most prestigious figures such as Paul Smith, Liberty, Tatty Devine and Fortnum & Mason, among others, being used his creations in fashion magazines, jewellry, clothes, rugs, plates, cards, books, etc. So without further delay, I leave you with his works of art, illustrations that tell little stories about love, friendship and solidarity.
