Welcome to Jarlstrøm Papercut Art
In the spring of 2004, I was sitting in my living room drinking coffee with my children. They were doing paper cuts, which I also wanted to try. When I first got started, I simply couldn’t stop again. I continued doing paper cuts until late at night, resulting in a wide variety of paper cuts.
It’s a long story, but the essence is that now, almost 20 years later, I still love to do paper cuts.
Feel free to look around my website – I hope you will enjoy it 🙂
Welcome to my universe with paper cut people. Through my paper cuts, I’m telling the story of the paper cut people. They are trapped deep inside the paper, until I start creating their shapes and sizes with the scissors.
I can sense that the paper cut people are trapped in their sadness inside the paper. They are unfulfilled and have something in their lives that weigh them down.
With a helping hand from the scissors, they are all cut free and given the freedom to travel around in this wonderful and diverse world, that we live in. Read more about my paper cuts.
What can happen when a paper cut artist works together with a photographer, a sound artist, a writer, or an actor?
