UK-based artist Rich McCor, who also goes by the name of 'paperboyo,' is able to create quirky and humorous pieces of landmark art by creatively using paper cutouts.

This set of famous landmark art came from McCor's desire to both view and capture historic places in a new and interesting way. He first began in his home city of London by turning the iconic clock tower Big Ben into an everyday wristwatch. After attracting the attention of Lonely Planet, McCor was recruited to travel all across Europe and remix landmarks in Stockholm, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Paris.

Using only black pieces of paper, the Arc De Triomphe is suddenly transformed into a LEGO character, a lion in Trafalgar Square plays with a ball on a string, and a mermaid sculpture in Copenhagen can be seen vainly using a selfie stick.
