Inspired by family, friends and by his high school art teacher, Calvin Nicholls enrolled in the three year graphic design program (1976-79)at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario.Upon graduation he spent his first year in an advertising agency before opening his own freelance design studio in north Toronto during 1981.Experiments with paper sculpture began in 1984 and before long paper sculpture played a dominant role in most of his design clients’ projects and campaigns.It was a matter of time before his life-long interest in art and wildlife combined.He had just completed a bird of prey with outstretched wings for Noranda Recycled Papers when it struck him how well suited the layering of feathers was to the art of paper sculpture. He created a lot of amazing sculptures with papers. you can see some of his artwork pieces below.
