Johan Scherft is a very talented artist whose extaordinary talent in sculpture and drawing gained him admittance to the Royal Academy of Arts in the Hague. There, he perfected his technique in both disciplines. He’s now a master of his mediums and has created numerous life-like paper sculptures of boats, animals, dinosaurs, and birds. These days, Johan is aided by a computer program in creating a blueprint for his sculptures. The rest – painting the details, coloring, and gluing the whole thing together – he does entirely by hand. The sculpture may take up to months to complete. He even has a solar-powered hummingbird!
