I’ve Been Experimenting With And Learning From Papercuts For More Than 6 Years, Here Are My 8 Cutouts Of Indian Havelis
I am Parth Kothekar from Ahmedabad, India. For more than 6 years now I have been experimenting with, and learning from, papercuts. In order to challenge myself, I come up with a thematic series of artworks from time to time.
Intricacy and beauty have always inspired me. This takes me to various architectural monuments in India. I have seen that almost every culture in India, throughout time, has left its mark through heritage architecture. Such a level of intricacy carved into stones during a period that had no modern tools inspired a sense of reverence in me. I wished to portray these ornate vintage motifs side to side with the timeless intricate beauty of Mother Nature. The architecture displayed in these papercuts is from the spectacular Havelis of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, and various monuments of the Mughal era.
Each artwork is cut out with a craft knife and took me a minimum of 15 days to complete.
My artworks are available for purchase on Etsy.
