Betchya didn’t think these sculptures were made out of paper

These paper sculptures by Ontario-based artist Calvin Nicholls will have you doubting that they’re just paper. Since the mid 80s, he’s been making work like this for advertising campaigns, private collectors, insti-
tutions, childrens books, corporate gift companies and galleries. Why all the white? He does that to emphasize the texture and form of each piece. After using a scalpel to assemble each sculp-
ture, Nicholls captures the detail on 8×10 film with a large format camera, prior to scanning for print applications or art prints.
