Japanese Chigire-e Art
No paint, no scissors, just newspaper…
I practice a traditional Japanese art form called ‘chigiri-e’, in which pictures are created from hand-torn Japanese paper. My Japanese heritage influences my work, but the material used is newspaper; adding a contemporary dimension to the work.
My process of paper collage begins with finding different colours and patterns on newspaper. Then I tear and glue the newspaper pieces onto paper. I use no paint, no scissors, just newspaper torn by hand.
