Throughout history, artists have discovered new materials and ways to express themselves. It was only a matter of time, therefore, that an unassuming roll of toilet paper could become the medium of choice for a talented Parisian artist…
Junior Fritz Jacquet is an artist and sculptor from Paris with a passion for all things paper. Taking these papercrafting skills to the next level, he’s now even transformed ordinary toilet paper rolls into a series of beautiful, hand-made painted masks. But there’s nothing bog-standard about his art!
JFJ has previously used more traditional paper forms such as cardboard and stationery in his work. His bigger masks, sized about 30cm to 40cm in height, are folded from a single sheet of white or black Canson paper.
