Amazingly intricate paper sculptures of animals and natural landscapes by Calvin Nicholls

In the hands of Canadian artist Calvin Nicholls, common paper sheets transform into gorgeous and intricate sculptures of animals and natural landscapes. It all started with experiments in the mid-80s and since then he has produced more than 500 pieces. Nicholls masterly explores the height difference between layers, highlights and shadows to provide an even greater sense of depth and volume.

I have been a full time paper sculpture artist since the mid 1980’s during which time I have created pieces for advertising campaigns, private collectors, institutions, book publishers, corporate gift companies and galleries. I enjoy white on white due to the emphasis which is placed on texture and form. One of my most extensive collections includes over 75 pieces for Follett Library Resources in McHenry Illinois. My training was in graphic design at Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario and after several years of running my own freelance design studio I made the gradual transition to paper sculpture.
