Paper Sculptures With Incredible Detail



Carlos Meira is a paper artist, designer and art director from Brazil. He studied at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where he attended the Arts Course. In the beginning of the 1990s, he moved to Portugal where he discovered his distinctive style of paper sculpture. When he returned to Brazil in 1996 he dedicated his time and focus to make illustrations. Now he makes paper sculpture and illustrations with jaw-dropping details.

His sculptures are made of of layers and layers of paper that give his work a three dimensional effect. Every tiny piece of paper is hand-cut, sometimes hand-painted, bent, rounded, smoothened to get a desired end result. Although his work has recurring theme of sports, carnival, landscapes, birds and owls but you can view more variety of work on his website.
