Reminiscent of an ancient culture, the fine art of paper cutting has been resurrected by a contemporary Australian artist who showcased his work at the Nomad Centre and Art Gallery on Monday [23 December]. Titled Shadow Art the exhibition of Tusif Ahmed’s work features a total of 19 pieces of Islamic art rendered in the traditional folk art of paper cutting, which evolved around 2,000 years ago in China and then travelled to Central Europe via the Silk Route, notably evolving with strong regional variations in Austria, Poland and Germany.
