Papercuts of Far Away Lands by Lucila Biscione

The longer you stare at Lucila Biscione‘s papercut illustrations, the more you will discover. Such magical creatures.. so much beautiful hidden details. Amazing!

Lucia Biscone is a Buenos Aires born artist who currently lives and works in Berlin. The works she creates are carefully cut by hand and often mixed with pencil and ink, which makes the characters come to life even more. It’s her own emotions that inspire her the most and challenges her to transform her art into a different reality. Every small detail of my life can be a story to draw.

You can find a beautiful selection of prints available on TOI Gallery.
