Artist Creates Hyperrealistic Cut Paper Illustrations Based On Photographs

Thomas Witte Creates Hyperrealistic Cut Paper Illustrations Based On Photographs - Lookout 4

Thomas Witte is a beyond talented cut paper artist, whose work focuses primarily on capturing the essence of a photograph by meticulously cutting out the negative spaces in paper. His background started in the vibrant stencil graffiti scene in Argentina, and his time there solidified his interest in this particular technique. Currently based out of New Jersey, Witte creates these immaculately detailed works, that are so accurately depicted you almost wonder, hmmm is this really cut paper. Well I can tell you that I have had a couple of occasions of seeing his work first hand and they definitely are. Now he is working on larger scale pieces, like we learned in his past interview and I’m excited to see his latest works which will be on display at the Davidson Contemporary Gallery, Booth N-100 at PULSE Miami from December 1-4th. So check it out!

“I do a lot of work inspired by photographs my Grandfather took in the 60’s and 70’s. I would love to go back in time and be on his trip to Spain, Portugal and Africa. I love the fashion and style from that era and would love to capture it in person.” – Thomas Witte, Strictly Paper Interview
