Art: Nithikul Nimkulrat’s Paper World

Some people have talent!

A colleague recently introduced me to the work of artist and textile designer Nithikul Nimkulrat after seeing her present at an academic conference in Europe. I am amazed at the intricacy of Nithikul’s white woven pieces of paper string and the way she thoughtfully and carefully combines art and research.

The Glass and the Straw

The Cradle

The Coal Rake

The Birch Tree

The Man

The Chair

Isn’t it absolutely incredible what Nithikul can do with paper string? You can see more of her work here. She has also written this book which I’m sure does not disappoint.
