It never ceases to amaze me when I come across such beautiful pieces of art made entirely of paper and the President Obama Cardboard Paper Sculpture by Michael Murphy is no exception.

The President Obama Cardboard Paper Sculpture is made from 66 pieces of hand-cut cardboard that's suspended above the ground by wire. The piece is truly exceptional for a variety of reasons, but my absolute favorite is the play on perspective. The President Obama Cardboard Paper Sculpture appears like a proper portrait from the front, but is in actuality an optical illusion; the slices are separated and are intricately cut and organized for maximum effect.

The President Obama Cardboard Paper Sculpture by Michael Murphy is one of several pieces of cardboard artwork that we're seeing with more frequency as of late.
