Cubist-Inspired Paper Cutouts Are Effortlessly Cut From a Single Sheet of Paper

Cubist-Inspired Paper Cutouts Are Effortlessly Cut From a Single Sheet of Paper by Jose Antonio Roda

Barcelona based illustrator José Antonio Roda transforms paper into cutouts that look like Cubist inspired line drawings. His hand cut portraits have a Picasso-esque familiarity like one of his famous sketches, with wonderful use of positive and negative shapes. Each illustration is produced from a single sheet of paper, where his careful incisions have an effortless feel to them. Some have even been juxtaposed against bright circles or rectangles in the background, making for a seamless color block. Shape and design are a huge part of cut paper illustration, and a rather evident appeal throughout José’s work where he shows clear dedication to detail and his craft.
