Threadless made a great video about the recent “Paper Cuts” are shot by Olly Moss at Gallery 1988 In Los Angeles. /Film interviewed Olly about the show, which featured amazing paper-cut silhouettes of pop culture characters.
Film: How did you come up with the idea for this show?
Moss: When I was first coming up with ideas for the show I had about six different ideas and I looked at them all and I thought, well, to start I was going to do about 60 of these and a bunch of other stuff. And I started drawing them and I thought this is enough for a whole show. There’s so many things I can do with it and kind of set all the expectations, twist them, like I did with the Where’s Waldo and Die Hard with the broken glass and stuff. I thought there’s totally a whole show in this idea so I’d do that. So it’s probably about 5, 6 months ago, maybe, so it’s been a long time in the works.
