Creating incredibly detailed life-size portraits, artist Risa Fukui makes her artwork all the more impressive due to the fact that she deftly creates it all out of sliced sheets of paper.

What originally looks like a series of line drawings is actually a collection of cutout images, all painstakingly sliced and snipped by hand to create delicate, lace-like pieces. These portraits are hung up on panes of glass so that the light can shine through them, casting a copy of each of the images onto the floor in the form of shadows, enhancing the astounding attention to detail and precision of the artist.

Risa Fukui patiently works with a sharp blade to cut out all the textures and shadows in people's faces to create her absolutely amazing collection of life-size portraits.
