It Took Him 30 Years, But What This Man Can Do Will Blow You Away....Just WOW
Akira Nagaya, a self-taught Japenese Kirie (literally “cut paper” in Japanese) artist has spent the past 30 years of his life learning one of the most ancient and beautiful arts in the world.
It requires patience, and brilliance, but most importantly… a willingness to endure years of paper cuts!
He has now opened up his own restaurant and decorates the walls with his creations.
The paper cuttings look like delicate pencil drawings or wire sculptures.
Nagaya discovered his talent in his early 20s when he was learning sasabaran – a technique for cutting food decorations from bamboo leaves at sushi shops.
Only later in his life, though, did he start to look at his paper cuttings as art and display them to the public.
