Amazingly detailed hand-cut paper art

I’ve previously posted about intricate hand-carved artworks made of paper before. However, this amazingly detailed hand-cut paper art from Japanese artist Mr. Riu is just as impressive, if not more.

He creates amazingly detailed papercuts of extraordinary complexity; each one is entirely hand-cut using a craft knife. Mr. Riu’s hand-cut paper art is mostly concentrated around intricate mandalas and delicate patterns. These are created using a zentangle technique, which are miniature pieces of unplanned, abstract, black and white art created from an ensemble of simple, structured patterns.

“It’s not that I can do it because I originally have a great patience,” says Mr. Riu on Instagram. “I think that my patience grow stronger gradually because I want to do it.”


Captions of his papercuts mostly reference quotes of love and peace, nature and human connection. To view more of his work, visit his Instagram page.
