Marc Hagan-Guirey, known as Paper Dandy, is a London-based artist who created Star Wars scenes by cutting and folding paper. This artistic Japanese technique is called kirigami. Each piece of artwork in his collection is a single sheet of paper. There is no glue or extra paper involved in this origami art form.

Hagan-Guirey expresses his lifelong fascination of Star Wars through his art project called 'Cut Scene.' The whole project took two years to complete. To show his respect for the Star Wars brand, Hagan-Guirey refused to sell any of the art he constructed.

The exhibition displayed each piece of artwork placed on a shelf behind a sheet of glass, in an intensely dark room with a different color of light to illuminate each scene.
