Peter Callesen. The paper guy.

The things this artist makes, each from a single sheet of paper, are artworks of the sort I would dream to have in my some-day Californian style long flat home.

How can paper cut-outs gently comment on or expose our assumptions and fears about the natural world?

Better go check out Peter Callesen’s work and let me know what you think.
