Scissors & Paper: Cutout Artist of New York

Long story short from the New York Times: "Ming Liang Lu, a Chinese artist, cuts intricate portraits of people out of paper on the L train platform of the Union Square station in Manhattan on Monday."


"A self-described 'master paper portrait cutter,' he has the ability to trim facial portraits out of frail paper within minutes."

"Mr. Lu practices several ancient Chinese art forms and on weekends, he teaches calligraphy, painting and cutting at the New York Chinese Cultural Center."

"Mr. Lu is pleased when a rider wants a portrait — he accepts donations — but he is also content cutting an interesting face. 'Not about money,' he said. 'About face.'"
