Picasso, Monet, Pollock, and Dali all mastered art in their own special way, leaving legacies that extend years -- even centuries -- beyond their lifetimes. Now comes globetrotting wunderkind Paperboyo, an innovative genius who is transforming how we think about modern art the value of the cut-out.
Cut-outs, you say? Yup. In Around the World in Cut-Outs, Paperboyo uses cut-outs and photography to create untraditional works of art featuring some of the most recognizable and beloved monuments in the world. The Eiffel Tower wearing butterfly wings? Check. The Roman Colosseum barely containing a ginormous octopus? It's there. New York's Guggenheim Museum reimagined as a flower pot? He's got that too. And those are just the beginning.
Flip through categories like Pop Culture, Architecture, and Playing With Food to discover all kinds of bold, eye-catching pieces that are surefire conversation starters. Paperboyo has also included behind the scenes looks at how he puts together his photo shoots, which takes didn't go so well (read: major fail), and which final products got the most likes on his Instagram feed.
Around the World in Cut-Outs is a visionary's ode to all that is whimsical and imaginative in this world. Give one as a gift to travelers who have their own treks in the offing and let them use the included cut-outs to create gems of their own. Who knows, maybe they'll author their own book next, with a lovely shout out to their benefactor -- you!
