I was recently contacted by two very talented artists, Dmytro and Iuliia who live in the Ukraine. They wanted to know if I still featured Etsy shops here on my DZFANTASY blog. I am so happy they contacted me as their work is quite exquisite and I love having the opportunity to have everyone learn a bit more about these two artists and their delightful work! Throughout the feature you will see photos of their paper cut art, and links to their work will be at the bottom of the feature. Enjoy learning about these artists and be sure to visit their links to see more of their work!
Higher than Sky Handmade Original Papercut Gift: Hand-Cut Paper Art Silhouette
What led you to start creating your art/craft?Our names are Dmytro and Iuliia and we live in Ukraine. We love creativity and handmade things, because looking at them you can feel the inner world of the person who made them. So this encouraged us to share our handmade works with other people.
Our story begins from the childhood, when being children we visited creative classes such as painting, drawing and paper craft. Growing up and studying at university we didn't pay proper attention to creativity, but it always lived in our hearts.
How did you decide what medium you wanted to work with?Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend’s birthday. It was the first realized step as to how much creativity occupies an important place in our lives. After that, we took an interest in paper cutting art and started creating paper cut silhouettes.

What aspect of creating your art, do you find the most fascinating?Paper cutting is a very amazing process. At the beginning you just see a piece of paper and after spending several hours/days to cut, paper becomes a beautiful art work. Silhouettes for us are not just a sheet of paper. We put in our works a piece of love, care, kindness, happiness and truly believe that people can feel the same emotions looking at our paper cuts.
If you had to choose a fruit OR a vegetable, to describe your art/craft, what would you choose, and why?
All fruits and vegetables are tasty, healthy and unique and we would like our art to be every fruit or vegetable that people like and need.
