Zack McLaughlin is a London-based artist and sculptor who has created a series of beautiful bird sculptures from paper, clay, wire and wood. McLaughlin loves birds and his adoration for the natural world shines through in his amazingly lifelike work.
He made his first bird sculpture for his children's book concept which was about a young boy who made a paper bird lantern which flew away. Being unable to visualize how to paint this, he decided to make it instead and has never looked back since.
The artist has found that wood works well for the body of one of his sculptures and paper is best used for their sometimes delicate wings (which he cuts out individually by hand). Check out one of his little paper bird-feathers below and prepare to be amazed.
