Back in February I blogged a little roundup of my favourite paper artists, but I somehow managed to leave the astounding work of Peter Callesan off the list. Outrageous! His subject matter varies widely from beautifully crafted Gondry-esque castles to the morbidly fascinating skeletal portraits, all the way through to flora, fauna, romance and fairy tales. So in a belated attempt to redeem myself for the glaring omission, here are a few of my personal favourites from his Framed Papercut collections.
And not one to pass up a good fairy tale reference, there's even an A4 homage to Han Christian Andersen's tale of The Steadfast Tin Soldier, in which the soldier falls in love with a paper ballerina who lives in the paper castle.
It never ceases to amaze me that some stories can be so exquisitely told without a single word being written.
