Jeff Niska- Paper Sculptor

July 27th, 2010

Jeff Niska is a paper genius, working exclusively in the medium of paper sculpture.  The Los Angeles-born artist works mainly with white, which makes the exquisite play of light and shadow a large part of the appeal of his work.

Inspired by New York City’s ‘High Line” transit track converted park, Los Angeles has proposed plans for a High Line park on the west coast, in the neighboring Port of Wilmington.

“The new park, designed by San Francisco– and Boston-based Sasaki Associates, will stretch 3,000 feet wide and slope in an angular fashion from a flat area known as the Great Lawn up to about 15 feet above grade, with a walkway along the top—labeled the Paseo—affording views of the Port’s massive shipping containers as well as the ocean in the distance.”
