GAH!!!!! That was almost all I could muster for this post. Either that or, GASP!!! This is the insanely beautiful paper work of Paris based artist Maud Vantours, and I love it all! Her color choices {that grey, yellow, coral piece is killing me}, all of those layers, the cutting?! GAH/GASP, indeed.

    So much respect for this artist – I would never have the patience to cut that much paper! So visually striking.

    These are so awesome I just want to cry!
    The second, and the last one are my favourite pieces.
    I wonder wether some paper pieces are machine cut, or they are all hand cut.
