Intricate Chinese Rice Paper Cuts by Bovey Lee


For the past 10 years, Chinese artist Bovey Lee creates wonderfully intricate paper cuts on a single piece of Chinese rice paper, exploring a range of themes.

He says: "My narrative-based cut paper explores the tension between man and the environment in the context of power, sacrifice, and survival. These three “motivators,” as I call them, drive all our desires and behaviors toward one another and the environment. We live in a time when we overdo everything from technology to urbanization to consumption. My recent work is informed by our precarious relationship with nature in the twenty-first century, i.e., what we do to the environment with our super machines and technologies and what nature does back to us in reaction."
