Johns Hopkins University Displays Craig Tinsky's Unique Papercut Art
Specializing in portraiture, Craig Tinsky's works must be seen in person for one to truly appreciate his gift. He demonstrates an amazing eye, matched by a steady hand, and exceeded by limitless patience. Most pieces consist of a single sheet of paper with holes cut in it. That's how the artist describes much of his work. In fact, he developed a technique for creating images that look like photographs, simply by cutting holes in paper. Pieces range from 8" x 10" to nearly four feet high.
Craig Tinsky is an innovative artist raised in Miami and living in Washington DC. He is best known for pushing the medium of papercut art and and creating works that look like paintings, screen prints, etchings, and photographs.
