  • Paper Artist, Mia Liu was born in 1980, in Taipei, Taiwan. She studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, followed with a Masters in Fine Art at the University of New York. She has won numerous awards for her work.

    Made from reclaimed objects, her paper art is exquisitely beautiful. The artist punches holes into thousands of paper strips to form decorative patterns.



    Mia remarks on the ‘Guggen Donut’, ‘This work uses Guggenheim Museum’s tickets as the creative medium, and attempts to use this medium in a journal-like documentary project. Using the ticket hole-punched method, I’ve turned my daily routine of eating donuts at the Guggenheim Museum café into the topic of my creative work. Through the process of punching holes, I’ve tried to turn the orange ink used on the tickets into the primary color on the artwork’s surface. The completed work shows an interesting reconstructed twist for the ready-made object.’

    Absolutely stunning.
