“For me, cutting pictures has become a way of dissipating all the stress of my daily life. If you want to get started, all the basics you need are tant paper, a cutter, matte, and a good light source,” told the Japanese artist to Bored Panda.

The process started with Fukuda drawing her sea animal’s sketches on a single A2 white paper.

“This piece took me two months,” explained Fukuda.

Believed to exist since 700 AD, Fukuda is using a Japanese technique called Kirie or Kirigami to cut her paper art. With her remarkable talent and her outstanding skills, Fukuda has been producing many intricate paper arts like the octopus.

Fond of sea animals, most of Fukuda’s arts focused on the mysterious creatures under the sea.
