Artist Cuts Paper to Create Portraits of Iconic People

Korean artist Yoo Hyun has a simple toolkit to create her striking hyperrealistic portraits of famous figures. Taking pieces of clean white paper, she uses an X-Acto knife and tongs to hand-cut and deliver a range of charming portraits of everyone from Audrey Hepburn and Michael Jackson to Frida Kahlo and Picasso. Up close, her artworks look complicated; a few steps further away and the icon reveals itself in all its glory.
