Gallery: Peter Callesen

I thought the most fitting artist to spotlight on our first Gallery posting is Danish artist Peter Callesen. He's one of the artists I stumbled upon about a year ago and whose work always leaves me speechless. Taking humble sheets of A4, he transforms them into intricate, narrative pieces of art. Below are just a few examples of some of his beautiful work:

Alive, But Dead (2006), Peter Callesen

Holding on to Myself, 2006, Peter Callesen

Eismeer, 2006, Peter Callesen


  1. I love all of his work - great feature!

  2. People use paper for writing, printing important documents needed for school, work of personal purposes, recycle or shred them - while others make it into beautiful works of art like the ones shown above. This inspires us that while there are those who simply waste paper, we can still do our part in making people aware of the importance of paper - may it be art or for our environment.
