PaperCuts is the blog of cut-paper artist Patrick Gannon.
Paper art was introduced to me while I was at the Savannah College of Art and Design. I’ve grown to love the textures, colors, patterns and smell of it. I even like the callouses.
In addition to my personal and gallery work, my cut-paper creations have been featured in magazines, newspapers, textbooks, advertisements, and a bunch of other stuff. It pops up in both the US and Japan.
I live and draw in Fukuoka, Japan. Originally I’m from a farm in the New Jersey countryside. That probably explains why animals feature in so much of my art – and why I almost never draw cows.
I began PaperCuts in order to help my friends, family and art co-conspirators to keep track of me since coming to Tokyo. I’ll be rambling on about my work and all those things that make life so weird and special. Leave comments, ask questions, make requests.
