Meet Chie Hitotsyuama, the Japanese artist who uses newspapers to incredibly realistic animal sculptures.

She grew up in her grandfather’s traditional paper-strip factory in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, in Japan. That’s where she was surrounded by sights, sounds, smells, and feel of the old and wooden machineries, and this shaped her life as an artist.

Chie Hitotsyuama began her artistic journey as an illustrator, working on two-dimensional surfaces. Later, she started making sculpture. With her knowledge of line, depth, and proportion, she chose an uncommon meaning to make life-sized sculptures of animals. They are created using discarded newspapers. She rolls each newspapers into strings and then forms the sculptures. Here are some animal sculptures from newspaper she has made:

  1. Chie’s work is truly amazing. She should start a school to teach students her technique. It looks as though her art is a meditative process and would teach her student much of great value even if they never reached her level of mastery.
    I am in awe.
