Miniature Paper Cut Artist Creates 365 Days of Egrets, Sparrows, Pelicans and Other Birds


If you’re a fan on all things miniature, then you should be following India-based cut paper artists Nayan Shrimali and Vaishali Chudasama. They have set out to construct 365 miniature bird species by the end of 2018. To form each work, the pair begins by cutting feathers, beaks, and talons from layers of paper and then using watercolor to produce further detail. Despite the works’ small size (some of the tiniest pieces measuring only 3/4 of an inch from head to tail), each bird takes four to six hours to finish depending on the extent of the bird’s colorful plumage.
