i’m jealous of peter callesen

petercallesen

My scrap A4 paper usually turns into several grocery lists, or a make-shift note pad beside the phone, ultimately ending up in the recycle bin. Why, oh why, did I not think of intricately cutting it into beautiful, crisp, white scenes of impending doom?! Damn it. I would love to see what Danish artist Peter Callesen’s grocery list looks like… I bet it’s gorgeous!

    Go check out his site. Awesome is an understatement. He has a bunch of work that is HUGE… all made out of paper.

    “Why, oh why, did I not think of intricately cutting it into beautiful, crisp, white scenes of impending doom?! Damn it.” — I just got my laugh of the day reading this! I love viewing these intricate works of art, but would never have the patience to do them.

    Oh how many times I have said “I wish I… But I am happy with the things I did think of. I just hit 59 years on the 3rd of May. I just hope I have many years to do and wish. I just adore paper and many other materials to work with. I so enjoy the site and the art you have here. Alisa
