Who is Calvin Nicholls?
Calvin Nicholls is an artist from Toronto, Canada, who makes incredibly detailed works of art made entirely out of paper. He’s creating an entire collection of paper animals, complete with individually cut feathers and fur, that pop out of their frames for an incredible 3D effect.
Calvin began creating his paper art over 30 years ago. He told metro.co.uk: ‘While freelancing as a graphic designer in the 1980s, I was introduced to the art form and I began my search for tools and archival quality materials immediately.’
He’s now a paper art expert, creating some of the most intricately detailed pieces we’ve ever seen. The process, as you’d expect, is pretty involved, with pieces taking up to a year to create.
