Canadian artist Calvin Nicholls creates the amazingly beautiful sculptures of animals, birds using sheets of paper. Calvin has been creating his paper sculptures since 1986 from his studio, which is north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Working with paper and a scalpel, he cuts the component pieces to fit the final drawing and assembles the low relief artwork under studio lighting. When the sculpture is complete the lighting is adjusted to bring out the subtle form and texture.
