Meet the Artist: Archie Granot
Papercuts are a traditional art form used in many Judaica designs, and Israeli artist Archie Granot is one of the leading papercut artists in the world. His creative papercuts - the ketubah, mizrach, mezuzah, birkat habayit (blessing for the Jewish home) and more - both revive and continue a traditional Jewish art form while innovating against it. Distinguished by multiple layers of paper, Granot produces creative and beautiful papercuts - complex and impressive works, each cut with surgical scalpel - that require a lengthy and intuitive process of creation, a process often hidden beneath the multiple layers of paper. Curves and links are interwoven creating incredible depth, texture and movement. Archie Granot's use of Hebrew inscriptions, hand cut in astonishingly precise calligraphic letters, is an integral part of his papercuts.Learn More
