Cutout Workshop by Illuminight Artist, Teppei Hayakawa

Illuminight is our biggest attraction at HYPER JAPAN Christmas 2017. There is no doubt that this unique display of Japanese lanterns will wow all HYPER JAPAN visitors this year!

We are excited to announce that one of the artists, Teppei Hayakawa, will come from Japan to hold a kirie/切り絵 (cutout) workshop for us! This is a great chance to learn from an artist who makes incredibly delicate and detailed cutouts of animals and nature!

Profile of the artist

Born 1982, Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. First began to create papercut art as a child after cutting paper for fun with his mother. Currently based in Maibara, Shiga Prefecture, his work draws from the scenes of nature and the animals he comes across on a daily basis. In addition to small, finely-crafted papercut works, he is now searching for new modes of expression through the form, such as large-scale installations and illuminated pieces.
