Japanese Artist Cuts Complex Paper Octopus From Single Sheet Of Paper

Paper cutting art requires incredible patience and a steady hand. Japanese artist Masayo Fukuda has mastered this craft. Known as Kirie in Japanese (which means “cut picture”), the traditional art form involves cutting complex forms from a single sheet of white paper and contrasting it against a black background in order to reveal the design. Fukuda has been practicing Kirie for 25 years and she's recently revealed what she believes to be her best work of 2018—a mesmerizing life-sized paper octopus.


At first glance, the beautiful artwork looks like it was rendered using fine-tipped pens; however, Fukuda carefully cut every detail from one sheet of paper. The elaborate depiction details the majestic sea animal’s rounded body, bulging eyes, and eight long arms. Various textured sections look like pieces of delicately patterned lace, such arm suckers that resemble decorative doilies and decorative swirling patterns on the head. The astonishing artwork celebrates the beauty of the species, that are known to change their skin color and texture within seconds to match their surroundings.


You can see Fukuda’s amazing Kirie designs up-close at Miraie Gallery in Osaka from April 24 through April 30, 2019. If you cannot make it to Japan, you can check out more of the artist’s impressive creations on Instagram.

  1. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called dr.ajeghe. When I nearly lost David in one of our stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read so many testimony about Dr. ajeghe love spell,how he help to bring back ex lover back.I quickly email him.and also get back my husband with his love spell. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!!
