Marcelo Kato Paper Sculpture

Marcelo Kato’s papercut and paper sculpture work takes my breath away. The Brazil-based paper artist has been honing his craft since age three, when he first picked up a pair of scissors, and his incredible portfolio of paper creations speaks to the love that he has for the medium. I can’t get over how amazingly detailed his work is. Look at all of the tiny little paper bricks below (oh. my. goodness.):

Marcelo also has a shop called Marcelost World, where you can purchase a selection of his papercuts, just a few of which are shown below:
