Patrick Cabral is a multi-disciplinary designer based in the Manila, Philippines, whose latest works are comprised of various animals created from multiple layers of paper. Each are delicately cut with unique patterns, accentuating the finer details such as the fur, to explore the natural characteristics of the animal form. This has been an ongoing series on his Instagram account where he states, “I want to provide a contrast of soft materials to a predator.” He has since then added to his series with more endangered species like the lion featured above, and hopes to eventually show how fragile some species are and how close they are to extinction.
“I think these delicate papercuts could show how vulnerable our wildlife is. I promise to make new pieces that highlights the the ones that are more in danger of extinction than the pretty ones. I also want to start a project for World Wildlife Day.” Patrick Cabral
You can continue to follow his series through his Instagram account, Darkgravity. We look forward to seeing more incredible works in the future.
