Middle Child Papercut Art
- June 7, 2014
-- Washington based artist Craig Tinsky creates magnificent portraits by meticulously cutting precise holes in sheets of colored paper. Tinsky developed a technique he calls the "ribbon-halftone"
whereby he seems to bridge papercut, pixelization, impressionism, and pointalism to create images evocative of photographs. His work has recently been acquired by actor David Arquette, Broadway producer Jordan Roth, and futurist Ray Kurzweil. Mr. Tinsky has lent his talent and voice to support charities throughout the U.S. by donating original artwork to benefit auctions. Groups receiving such donations include Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation, Stand with Syrian Refugees, Harold Hunter Foundation, Manitou Bereavement Camp, Lycee Francais de New York, JCC of Greater Washington, and Tahiri Center for Justice.http://www.washingtonpost.com/gog/exhibits/no-paint.-no-i...
