History of the papercut – “Yes but No”

The papercut illustrates the double messages people tell. What do people really want? They can say one thing and then do something completely else!? It’s a metaphor that can be applied in many situations and conversations.
The first painting was commissioned by a client in Africa who needed art for his nightclub, Rediguana. The first version of the “Yes but No” painting is located in the nightclub in Sousse, Tunisia. The second version of the painting was bought in the art gallery Sthlm Art and can now be found in Norrköping, Sweden. This painting is the third and last version of the lady.

This is the original papercut, the Mother of all the paintings and street art made with this papercut. The papercut is handmade and cut out with a simple knife. The process in very time consuming and requires enormous amounts of patience and detail work. The papercut has been used during 3 years all over the world leaving an imprint of the picture everywhere it has been used. The energy that once created the papercut has been re-used many times creating new artwork. This papercut is one of the first papercuts I created. The positive energy it has gathered during 3 years is all contained in this papercut. – Moses
