Hideo Iwasaki

A very talented artist wrote to us, making us very happy! We are so excited by his amazing work we need to share.

Detail of Mobile Composition I, 2007
black paper

Born in Tokyo in 1971, Hideo Iwasaki, is a contemporary papercut artist with an unusual background in biology. He has been papercutting from the tender age of seven and seek to express the raw characteristics of papercut. He creates mono-chromatic works directly with a knife, with an impressive step-by-step documentation here. His work as a biologist allows him to liberate the studies of life science in his art intuitively. Installed between glass panels or as mobiles, there is multiplicity in viewing his abstract compositions.
