Thousands of Paper Strips Delicately Placed to Create Stunning Portraits

Thousands of Paper Strips Delicately Placed to Create Stunning Portraits by Nathalie Boutté - Plenty Buffalo

French artist Nathalie Boutté is self-taught collage artist who creates absolutely stunning portraits, seen previously, comprised of thousands of meticulously placed strips of Japanese paper. She cuts long narrow strips of translucent paper that she patiently assembles, one by one creating a feathered effect which constantly evolves. These strips of paper are sometimes burned, like in the collage featured above or covered in letters to form the striking details in the features of her subjects.
