Renowned artist Pablo Picasso once quoted “An artist is receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” If someone wants to understand the depth of his words they should certainly fly down to the magnificent and vibrant India for the answer.
Meet Parth Kothekar a paper-cut artist from India who creates beautiful silhouette’s out of sheets of paper. All his paper cut artworks are hand sketched and then hand cut individually using paper cutter knife, Although he was not inclined towards this art from beginning it was a general experimentation with graffiti stencils that led to the idea of paper-cut into his mind, initially it was just a hobby but his near and dear ones inspiration that led him to take it up as a full-time profession.
Parth Kothekar has recently set up his own studio “paper-cut studio” which exhibits his splendid art. He has also put up his art for sale on Etsy.
