Chris Natrop’s large-scale, hand-cut paper art is inspired by his environment and stream of consciousness. The pieces are unique and comprised of intricate and entwined designs that are reflected into multiple dimensions with the shadows that they cast. He draws directly on the paper with a utility knife, eliminating the possibility of correction and making his work more free-form.

Chris Natrop earned an B.F.A. at School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1993. He is a Los Angeles-based artist and has exhibited nationally and internationally.
