Wildlife, Flora, and Portraits: Paper Art by Kanako Abe

constellation bear, paper art

Artist Kanako Abe creates cut paper art that’s so fine that it’s hard to tell you’re looking at thinly-sliced lines. The exquisite details have a lyricism to them; they look as though they’ve been drawn with a pen. Even the subject matter has a mystical quality, and Abe’s Instagram captions accompany them like little bits of self-help. “Sometimes we need to leave our comfort zone,” one reads, “jump into the wilderness of intuition and follow our heart… what you discover there will be truly amazing.”
