Calvin Nicholls Paper Sculpture


Calvin Nicholls is an artist who has been a full-time paper sculpture artist since the mid-1980′s.

He uses nothing but a scalpel, time, patience, and well-lit sheets of paper,
Nicholls makes these paper sculptures for use in advertising campaigns, private collectors, institutions and galleries.

To make these sculptures, each component is cut and textured through the use of a collection of wooden and metal tools. Nicholls monitors the interaction of light and shadow on the sculpture as he work. With its completion, Nicholls create a more elaborate set with sophisticated studio lights. Final enhancements are made at this stage prior to photography.
