NATURE INSPIRED ART - KAKO UEDA

Kako Ueda is one of my favorite artists that composes extremely detailed and intricate artwork by cutting paper.  Craft of composing images by cutting paper exists in many cultures, especially Japan, where Kako Ueda is from.  Kako is interested in organic beings such as animals, plants, people, insects and how they are modified by culture.  In Kako Ueda’s cutouts I see outlines of flowers and organic shapes that belong to cultures and subcultures of different time periods - tattoos, deers, skulls, as well as Art Deco flower patterns, flowers executed in Victorian style.
