Rob Ryan’s intricate paper cutting illustrations

London-based artist Rob Ryan introduces his intricate paper cutting illustrations in this lovely Handmade Portrait video from Etsy TV.

Artist Rob Ryan‘s studio is located in a cozy nook in Bethnal Green, London. He and his band of merry helpers spend their days paper-cutting fantastic worlds of love, friendship and longing. It’s hard not to feel an emotional response toward Rob Ryan’s work: it’s timeless in its approach and includes positive missives like “Believe in People” and “Our Adventure Is About to Begin.” What could be a greater way to celebrate the world than acknowledging the beauty in the everyday?
