Inspiration - Peter Callesen's Paperwork


I completely found Peter Callesen's work by accident, I've been racking my brain all day trying to think of another artists name and one of his projects came up in the google search. I was pretty blown away by what this chap can do with a single piece of paper and some glue. He cuts out shapes from the paper and builds structures to form complimentary shapes. His body work work is massive too, I have just chosen a few of my favs, mainly of the a4 work but he's done numerous large scale installations, commissions and even some stuff involving floating castles!

If that sounds all good to you I urge you to check more of his stuff out here. I'm pretty chuffed about finding is work, especially seeing that I wasn't working for it. All pics from Peter Callesen's site.

  5. Gorgeous stuff. Very delicate and beautiful. Kind of calming.. Some of it feels like paused paper animation, like I'm in the middle of a story.
