Stunning and Lifelike 3D Paper Sculptures From Canada

Dedication to their craft, and putting for the best possible project is something we should always strive to remember and respect about artists. Calvin Nicholls is a Canadian artist who spends months creating masterful works of art from pieces of paper. Starting with a basic outline of a design, he methodically traces and applies the correct layers.

The results are simply breathtaking, and you begin to understand why he works so slowly and deliberately. He simply cannot afford to make a mistake that could endanger the whole project. And while some pieces are smaller than others, some are of a considerable size and remind you of his dedication and devotion. And each one is spectacularly detailed and beautiful.

Well that took awhile…but all of the final touches have been touched up and retouched up so I'd better stop. Final photography done and just the frame to go.

As revealed in his Nature Artists bio, “…I want people to be drawn in to explore the work and to consider the medium. Although I have completed pieces in full colour I continue to experiment with the interaction of light and shadow…” This ethos is often reflected in his pieces.

Hold still. This won't hurt.

It simply can't be overstated. Being invited to Birds in Art is so awesome! I'm thrilled to have my piece titled "Magpies" included and to see first hand, the amazing work and artists again this fall.

Calvin had very supportive friends and family, and this spurred him into a graphic design program in the late seventies. After graduating, he spent his first year in an advertising agency before opening his own freelance design studio in north Toronto back in 1981. Since then, he has started a family where he and his wife encourage the artistic abilities of their children, all but ensuring more great art to be seen by many in the future.

Check out the video below to see this amazing artist in action!

A small (9×12) but fun piece commissioned by a client is just finished and ready for framing. Haven't done colour accents recently apart from this one but rather enjoyed it.
