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, and it works as a warning: you will get visually punched!
Three artists: Wolf Erlbruch, Jan Švankmajer, Květa Pacovská.
Three writers: Clarice Lispector, Paulo Leminski, Charles Bukowski.
Three books: "Death, Duck and the Tulip", "Through the Looking Glass", "The Wolves in The Walls".
PAPERPUNCH! Is committed to artistic excellence, originality and richness of content.
"There's no reality without absurdity."
