3D Lifelike Paper Bird Art by Johan Scherft

Dutch artist Johan Scherft is most often inspired by nature. His talent is evident in his unusual paper bird art where the birds are not only lifelike but life sized.

He explained, “I make the birds (and other animals) from paper templates. The templates are hand colored with watercolor and gouache before assembling. Some of the birds are scanned before putting together. In this way I can make a few birds, using the same design.

He uses very fine brushes and adds layers about layers of paint to achieve the effect he wants.  He offers templates, duplicates and original hand painted 3D bird art on his Etsy appropriately named Paper Perch.
