rogan brown

Yeah. I know, right?¬†This is the absolutely breathtaking paper-cut work of British born, France based artist¬†Rogan Brown. I wrote about him five years ago, and my mind is still blown by the magic he makes. Now, I know you’re already shouting, ‘wait, does he do this by hand?!’ … yes, some of it. These ridiculously detailed, science-meets-fiction masterpieces are a combination of hand-cut and laser-cut paper. Speaking of paper, here are Rogan’s thoughts on his chosen material:

“Paper embodies the paradoxical qualities that we see in nature: its fragility and durability, its strength and delicacy; there is a pleasing poetic symmetry in taking this material that was cut from the forest and by cutting and transforming it once again returning it to its origins.”

Beautiful. Happy Friday.
