When one thinks of construction materials, paper is probably the last idea that comes to mind. Artist Christina Lihan of Lihan Studio creates intricate buildings with fascinating details by using hand-cut paper. Her works (discovered on My Modern Met) are amazing three-dimensional replicas of famous bridges, various landmarks and buildings across the world, such as the Eiffel Tower or the Taj Mahal.
Here is a statement from the artist revealing further details of her sculptural paper buildings: “These artworks are made using unpainted, plain watercolor paper. I use very heavy 300 lb. cold press paper: Lanaquarelle, Arches and Fabriano. Although the pieces look like sculpture, they hang on the wall and range from 2″ to 6″ deep. They are framed in shadow box frames, which I usually make, out of wood, either stained or left natural, depending on the piece“. We invite you to patiently check out the impressive details of each design and let us know if you find Christina’s projects as delightfully entangled as we do.
