Japanese Paper Cut Artist Nahoko Kojima

Nahoko Kojima (32) is originally from Hyogo in Japan, and an Alumna of Kuwasawa Design in Tokyo. She has been residing in the UK since 2006 and is spearheading hand-made Japanese Papercut Art in the UK and fast becoming one of the leaders in her discipline internationally. She started practicing hand-made Japanese Papercut in 1987 and has honed her skill to perfection.
In 2013 Nahoko was awarded the Jerwood Makers Open commission for which she proposed her next major Paper Cut Sculpture. This piece was unveiled in the same year, taking 7 months to make and was called Byaku (meaning ‘white’ in Japanese), a handmade life-sized Polar Bear cut using only one 3m x 3m sheet of white Japanese washi paper.
