Paul Johnson

I make unique sculptural pop-up books using brilliant industrial textile dyes with added pen and ink work and gold leaf inlays. The inspiration for my work comes from medieval illuminated manuscripts and stained glass, the decorative arts of South East Asia, the golden age of children’s book illustration and the architecture of Antoni Gaudi.
