Peter Callesen is an artist from Mors, Denmark who specializes in the art of paper cutting. He creates breathtaking architectural sculptures using only a single sheet of paper, showcasing buildings in miniature and in states of ruin with incredible detail.
Peter’s works mainly feature white paper, particularly A4 sheets which are commonly used to carry information today. By stripping away all information and starting with a blank white A4 paper sheet, he found a material that everyone can relate to. This blank canvas allows him to infuse different meanings into his creations.
The fragility of the thin white paper adds to the tragic and romantic themes in his works. Through his art, Peter invites us to see the beauty and potential in something as simple as a single sheet of paper.
