Japanese Artist Uses Complex Cuts To Form Detailed Paper Sea Creatures, Flowers, and Reptiles

One of the most interesting art forms we’ve seen lately has been perfected by Japanese cut paper artist Riki Fukuda who creates mind-bogglingly detailed designs using simple tools: a cutting mat, blade, and paper.

She regularly shares her in-progress and finished works on Twitter, including the pencil sketches that she cuts into for her final works. More recently, Fukuda has been working on smaller-scale creations and experimenting with holographic paper.
