Shakespeare said it best when he wrote “life is but a dream.” Ukrainian artists Dmytro and Iuliia live the dream through their carefully and thoughtfully prepared handmade paper cuts. Armed with paper and special tools this team creates fantastical love infused art. We asked the duo a few questions and fell in love with their work! :
How you got started?
Our names are Dmytro and Iuliia and we live in Ukraine. We are creating hand-cut paper silhouettes inspired by nature, life and people who like our works. Paper cuts are made from a single sheet of paper and all of pieces are interconnected.
From our childhood we are fond of creativity. Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend’s birthday. After that, we took interest in paper cutting art and started creating paper cut silhouettes. But decision about creating our DreamPapercut shop and share our art with other people came to us a half year ago.
What materials you use?
We use different colors of paper but the popular one is black. Also use special cutting mat and knifes to cut silhouettes.
What inspires you?
Our works are inspired by nature, life and people who like our works. To get inspiration we go for a walk to the parks, forests to enjoy the nature. Also we like meet with our friends and spend time talking and having tea. It helps us to relax and get new energy to create original works.
Your favorite pieces?
All paper cuts in our shop are unique, intricate and the most favorite for us. Paper cutting is very amazing process, when at the beginning you just see a piece of paper and after spending several hours/days to cut, paper becomes a beautiful art work. Silhouettes for us are not just a sheet of paper. We put in our works a piece of love, care, kindness, happiness and truly believe that people can feel the same emotions looking at our paper cuts.
What do you do for fun?
We are fond of different kinds of sports, like traveling and try ourselves in painting.
