MarcPaperScissor

MarcPaperScissor is a Florida/New York based artist working in many mediums but is best known for his vivid color, composition and uniquely meticulous methods of working with cut paper. He has cut thousands upon thousands of pieces of paper to create his body of work.His process is a test of patience, concentration and persistence. Each paper shape is hand-cut individually with steady hands and a pair of ordinary scissors (no exacto knife). The archival cut paper is then carefully glued into place layer upon layer creating a world of vibrant colors, fascinating characters, concepts, and themes. There are subtle layers of dimension and intricacy that you can only see by standing in front of an original.

Marc believes that multiple levels of solid simplicity, layered within the right space can make a seamless and well-balanced whole.  This is not only the way he approaches his visual art, but tries to apply this to his life in general.”
MarcPaperScissor’s source of inspiration comes from endless reflections on nature and the environment, space and time, politics and culture, science and technology, perception and mindfulness, music and humanity along with a tremendous sense of humor as he shares his stories and worldview in his art.

Since the beginning of his creative journey 8 years ago, every single scrap of paper that is left over is saved and recycled for future work. He signs his name using the Chinese characters for MarcPaperScissor, honoring the craft of paper cutting.

Marc has exhibited in galleries in the US and Canada and his art has been used in a wide variety of formats: magazines, limited edition prints, show posters, apparel, album & book covers, murals, tattoos, interactive art installations, as well as animation.

Marc has just completed producing, designing, and directing the Spam All-Stars animated music video “Around the Track” with C3 Motion Graphics. He was featured on the front cover of The Spring 2011 Issue of WeMerge Arts Magazine. MarcpaperScissor interviews include write ups in The Sun Sentinel, New Times, and City Link. He has worked with Grooveshark, Delray Beach International Tennis Championships, Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival and continues to expand his clientele through MarcPaperScissor Studios.
