Self-taught Japanese artist Akira Nagaya transforms paper into stunning works of art called kirie, or cut paper in Japanese. The 47-year-old artist eventually opened his own restaurant, where he displayed his beautiful cuttings. Only when a local newspaper came along and suggested that Nagaya exhibit his works in a gallery did he actually start to consider his cuttings as art.
