Thomas Witte New Jersey, EE. UU., b. 1981.


An American artist, he studied sculpture at Rutgers University and then traveled to Argentina, where he learned the stencil technique from graffiti and Street Art creators. Later, he decided to make the stencil the main object of his work, concentrating on the cutting process. Witte reworks old photographs on paper, as well as some more recent ones taken by himself.


His process contemplates the projection of the photo on the paper, the drawing of guide lines that will serve as a map, and finally the hand-cutting of the shapes that make up the image.


Witte's works reach an incredible level of detail, managing to reproduce shapes, textures, brightness, lights and shadows, as well as a marked sense of depth, using only cuts and incisions on heavy paper.
