Artist Gugger Petter uses newspaper as her inspiration to create these amazing portraits. With hard work and imagination, she has since discovered a technique allowing her to weave newspaper rolls together to produce actual faces.

At first sight, Petter's artwork pieces look like paintings, but when one takes a closer look, it becomes visible that the texture and 2D-dimension of her work is unlike any other. Her passion for newspaper and the challenge that is represented when working with it is the reason why she enjoys her work. She explains, "My manipulation of the tubes makes my work very strong, and the color limitation is a challenge that inspires me for each work I create." The good news about this limitation is that Petter managed to exceptionally overcome it by carefully arranging the material according to color.

These art pieces by Gugger Petter are a good example of how passion and dedication are a good combination for those looking to create beautiful art. Stats for 2D Newspaper Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
