Boo Paterson


I’m a paper artist and book sculptor, most commonly known for my strong conceptual and political work.

It is my mission to elevate papercutting from folksy craft to a catalyst for change and subversion.

My fine art has been exhibited at the prestigious Royal Scottish Academy, and has been admired by the Pulitzer-winning art critic, Jerry Saltz.

Extensive press coverage on me has appeared across the world, including on The BBC, The Guardian, The Week and The Sunday Times.

I have been shortlisted in the World Illustration Awards twice and
have an illustrated book out worldwide called Papercut This Book, with another illustrated title to be released by Simon & Schuster in 2020.
