British Artist Creates Flowers and Animals out of Delicately Cut Paper

Pippa Dyrlaga is a Yorkshire-based artist and printmaker who has chosen a quite different way of showing her hand skills. Graduated in Contemporary Art, she uses classic paper cutting techniques to create delicate fine art cutouts. The subtle design of her art refers to the aesthetics of Art Nouveau posters created at the beginning of the 20th century.

Dyrlaga’s work is meticulous and usually relies on using a single sheet of paper per drawing, in which she makes the mold with pencils and then cuts the back with stilettos and other special instruments. Done manually, the cutting process can take up to 80-100 hours to complete, but the level of detail is impressive and the final result resembles fine lace.
