Bert Simons makes incredible 3-D paper portraits, some of which are photo-realistic as you can be seen from the fourth image in the gallery. I really love the other female human figures and the camouflaged head among the greenery.

Simons is a Rotterdam-based artist who does graphic, product, interior, furniture and website design.

This work is simply amazing!

Implications - Though a blank sheet of paper is an awesome canvas, artists are now recognizing the potential of paper as a medium. Paper as a medium is attractive to eco-conscious consumers, as artists often use recycled pieces for their art. Paper also bears a naturally delicate, elegant aesthetic that resonates well with an audience.
