Hong Kong-born artist Bovey Lee is not afraid of paper cuts, as she is able to invent the most delicate and mesmerizing installations of art made out of parchment. With dedication and impressive talent, Lee tell stories in blank paper form.

A complete expert in this technique of art, Bovey Lee didn’t learn the style too long ago. In the year 2005, she completed her first piece, which promptly made her continue working with paper, improving her skills each time. In an interview for Design Boom, she discusses how her Asian background influences her art: “Using the very same Chinese rice paper for calligraphy, I define what I do as drawing with a knife. When I cut paper, it is a visceral reaction and natural response to my roots and affection for precision, detail, and subtlety.” These characteristics are certainly reflected on her masterpieces.

Graceful and enchanting, Bovey Lee’s paper cut pieces are a style of art that deserves total admiration.
