Is this paper’s modern day Matisse?

As a real art lover I’m always keen to see new styles and ideas. With the Henri Matisse exhibition currently dominating the Tate Gallery in London it’s easy to see why ‘cut out’ art is very much at the forefront of the public’s popularity.

Many things have evolved and changed since one of the masters of modern art created these painstaking pieces of work over half a century ago, and paper art is one of them.

I have recently stumbled across the breath-taking work of Fideli Sundqvist, a Swedish illustrator and graphic designer turned paper artist extraordinaire who was able to take this style to places Matisse, with his failing health at the time, was unable.

Her works are bright, bold and colourful, much like the Matisse’s work, but is so carefully crafted with clever details that bring these pieces to life.

I absolutely loved her work and hope you will too.
