Los Angeles native Jeff Nishinaka is the world’s premier paper sculptor with a prolific career. His portfolio spans a wide range including Bloomingdale’s, Sprint, Visa, Penn State University, Paramount Pictures and Coca Cola.

Nishinaka began working in paper quite by accident.

I have always wanted to be a painter, but while studying illustration at Art Center, I was given assignments in both a graphic design and fashion drawing class at the same time to experiment in different mediums, one of them being paper.
