Hou-Tien Cheng Paper Cutting - signed by artist

Description

We met Cheng at a show in Miami and had the pleasure of hanging out with him both during the show and after hours, sharing meals and getting to know him. He made s ome very tiny paper cuttings for us, which we sealed into buttons after he signed them.

This is the ONLY ONE with elephants. One of a Kind. I also have (not listed) a Unicorn and a Pegasus.

Hou-Tien is a rare performer, designer, illustrator and instructor in the ancient art of Chinese Paper Cutting. At a very young age in Taiwan, he learned his unique skill from his grandmother and perfected the art to earn the title Master of Paper-Cutting. He does his work free-form, without any sketching or marking on the paper in advance. You have to see his magical fingers to believe it!

Author of three books, Chinese New Year, Six Chinese Brothers and Scissors Cutting for Beginners, Mr. Cheng has performed for lucky audiences at The Brooklyn Museum, The Cloisters, and many more and taught workshops at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.

Neon orange background paper and the neon yellow cutting is layed over the orange paper. This is an actual paper cutting, autographed by Hou-Tien Cheng.
