Any great art should impress, whether it's the craft or the idea behind the work that makes an impression on the viewer. These paper artists from around the world do just that with their spectacular pieces of 3D paper art.

Whenever I see art that doesn't seem to have required that much money to create, I have a tendency to appreciate it on that fact alone, whatever form of art it is. There's something to be said for going on creativity alone without depending on equipment or materials only people with money can buy. Which brings us to these talented artists and their amazing body of work.

3D paper art uses only paper, nothing else. With how the artists fold and cut the paper, shades and shadows are created to give a more 3-dimensional feel. Some artists only use white paper, while others use color. But the only material they use is paper, nothing else. How they created such realistic and detailed pieces is beyond me. I can only imagine the hours and hours of meticulous work.
