Paper Cutting Art Projects with Tyvek

Florida Atlantic University is hosting an art exhibit from January 19 - March 2, 2013 called Papercuts, featuring "works by artists who manipulate, bend and cut paper, creating unique pieces ranging from visual narratives to complex sculptural abstractions." One of the artists featured in this papercutting exhibit is Béatrice Coron, who was featured in previous post in this blog. FAU's student magazine describes this papercut art exhibit and shows a photo of Coron's hand-cut Tyvek piece. Papercuts is a traveling exhibition; it was also recently shown at IUPUI's Herron Galleries.

Also previously featured here was papel picado - Mexican paper cutting where the artist Phil Ponce used Tyvek. And many other Tyvek art pieces featured here have been made with cut and manipulated Tyvek.

If you are thinking about doing some paper cutting artwork, this would be a great time to do it. Material Concepts currently has some black Tyvek available as odd lots, and a few different styles of traditional white Tyvek in odd lots/excess inventory. And of course, regular rolls of black Tyvek are always available, as are all styles of Tyvek paper, Tyvek fabric and Tyvek Graphics media.

Please contact Material Concepts or call us at 215-338-6515. Material Concepts is an authorized DuPont™ Tyvek® master distributor.
