Jeff Nishinaka began making paper sculptures more than 31 years ago. Since then, he has been endlessly experimenting and refining his amazing skills. In the artist’s words: “I try not to overwork or force paper into submission. I let paper do what it does naturally without forcing my will upon it. I feel that paper has energy and a life of its own and that I am only releasing or revealing what is already there.”
I had the privilege to be in a group show where Jeff was one of the artists. He is not only a very talented artist but a beautiful human being, super friendly and easy going. Seeing his work in person was amazing. Jeff lives and works here in Los Angeles, CA. I invite you to visit his website to see more of his work.
