Papercutting Storytelling

I have a small  collection of paper cutting art work - it is an ancient Chinese art and is sold in many places in China, so it is no surprise that I was fascinated by this creative art that is done with a sheet of paper, a pencil, scissors or a knife.

Yesterday I discovered Beatrice Coron, who is a paper cutting artist in the US - she was born in Lyon France, and has lived in many places of the world.  She makes the most extra ordinary pieces of artwork which all tell a story.  

You can see a video of a presentation she did - which shows the amazing ways in which her art work has been used around New York.

Click here to see a 20 minute video of a talk she gave - complete with awesome coat that she wore on stage and many examples of her work.

Below is a video to show how to create very simple paper cutting works
