Playful . Bold . Irreverent
PaperPunch! Was born out of a desire to produce artwork committed to deliver an element of surprise and humour with a touch of visual poetry. Each piece is created 100% by hand with traditional, archival-quality materials.
The name is a play between the subversive puppet character Mr. Punch and the stationary tool, of which Vera owns at least three in several sizes.
Three artists: James Ensor, Jan Švankmajer, Květa Pacovská.
Three writers: Clarice Lispector, Paulo Leminski, Charles Bukowski.
Three Places: Puebla (Mexico), my studio, my grandparents' house.
PaperPunch! Is committed to artistic excellence, originality and richness of content.
