Simple paper can be used to create really original paper sculptures, a clear example of this is the work of English artist Richard Sweeney who creates amazing artwork pieces through the cutting, scoring and folding of paper.

Implications - Paper has been embraced as a common medium in an array of industries, from art and design to fashion. One of the reasons why paper has become so popular is because of its environmentally friendly connotations, as paper art usually is made from upcycled pieces. Also, paper bears a naturally delicate, intricate aesthetic that provides relief from the cold, hard minimalist movement that has swept the design industry by storm.
