ZOOH has been working with The Paper Bird Man for several years.
His art is inspired by the “ordinary” birds that are around us all the time but are frequently forgotten and ignored. Birds are able to fly, a freedom that we can only dream about. Sometimes I want to capture the freedom they have and to put it in a cage, to make it mine. I find the contrast between freedom and entrapment quite shocking. Each bird is unique. The bodies are made of wire and waste newspaper. The “feathers” are made from magazines, images, patterns and sometimes words. The cages are made from chicken wire.
