Hina Aoyama, 46, is a Japanese paper-cutting artist and illustrator who creates amazing paper sculptures in a rather complex and precise manner. She makes super fine lacy-paper-cuttings using pliers and scissors. Her common themes include fairies, butterflies, and typography. Born in Yokohama, Japan, Aoyama is currently based in France. It was in 2000 when she started cutting papers. She eventually turned them into art upon establishing a style and technique that is original to her — the lace-like finish of the cutouts. It’s notable that the very detail that attracts a spectator is not in the color, as most of her pieces come in monochrome, but in how the cut outs were done meticulously.
She has launched several solo exhibits and joined different art festivals since 2004. She has also appeared in several TV shows, mostly in Japan. She has bagged awards from Le Grand Prix International and Le Salon des Contemporains, among others. For Aoyama, art is a “super psychiatrist” that cures people.
