Danish artist Peter Callesen takes the current craze for paper-cutting to new heights of virtuosity.
Working on a variety of scales - but always with paper - he hand-cuts the material into delicate artworks or large-scale installations.
His A4 Papercuts series features single sheets of white paper hand-cut into complex 3D forms with no sliver of paper wasted.
His installations, meanwhile, have involved constructing full-size paper staircases and carpet-sized papercuts.
Like fellow papercutters Tord Boontje and Robert Ryan, Callesen has a sentimental side, with many works featuring butterflies, birds and the like.
But he also explores darker themes such as death and fear.
See Peter's website for many more examples.
