Japanese paper artist Nahoko Kojima cuts intricate sculptures of animals, textures, and other natural phenomenon from single sheets of paper, sometimes encased in acrylic sheets and sometimes prepared to be 3D artworks like her Cloud Leopard. Nahoko is currently working on a new piece titled Byaku that will be unveiled at the Jerwood Space in London July, an ambitious artwork of a life-sized swimming polar bear made using a single sheet of white Washi paper.

More of Kojima’s work can be seem at this online gallery and you can find out more about her work at Solo Kojima – a design studio she founded with Shari Solo.
