Joseph James (born 1979 in the United States) graduated from the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki in 2010. James works with monochrome paper or multicoloured posters, drawing complex designs on the back of the paper and cutting out what is not needed. He then mounts these papercuts either individually or on top of each other to hang freely against a wall or stand, or in the air. His works can be stylized human figures, urban landscapes or completely abstract compositions. They are beautiful, fascinating and fresh.
