The work of Dutch artist Kuin Heuff is absolutely breathtaking, especially his Papiersnijwerk art series. This particular collection of portraits are intricately detailed through a dizzying array of strategic cutouts that lend an eerie aesthetic to each face. Yet what makes Kuin Heuff's portraits even more amazing is the fact that they were painted first and then cut away from the canvas afterwards.
As though portraying existent and non-existent veins beneath the surface of each portrait, Kuin Heuff creates stunning 2D works of art that manage to look 3D in the end. Kuin Heuff's paper cuttings are so captivating that he even made an appearance on an episode of the Dutch television show 'Sterren op het doek' (Stars on Canvas).
