Publish Time: 2023-08-08
The history of paper carving can be traced back to the Han Dynasty in China, when paper was not widely used, so the art of paper carving did not appear. Later, in the 16th century, Germany invented papermaking, and paper began to be widely used, and the art of paper carving gradually appeared.
The original paper sculptures were carved by hand, and later there was a way to use mechanical equipment to carve. In the 19th century, European printing technology was developed, which enabled the mass production of paper sculpture art.
In the 20th century, the art of paper sculpture has been more developed, among which the more representative ones are the paper sculpture works created by cubist artists and experimental artists. These works not only have artistic value, but also demonstrate the diversity and innovation of paper sculpture art.
With the development of technology, paper sculpture artists can now use a variety of different tools and techniques to create more complex and detailed works. At the same time, the art of paper carving is also constantly developing and innovating, and many new schools and styles have emerged.
Generally speaking, the development history of paper carving art is closely related to the invention of papermaking and the development of printing technology, and is also influenced by the culture and artistic style of different periods.
