It was a fateful day one December when, in search of a unique Christmas gift, Ali decided to try a new craft. Using a borrowed box cutter and her kitchen cutting board, Ali created her first papercutting. After falling in love with cutting paper, Ali armed herself with a sharper blade and an actual cutting mat, and Light & Paper was born.

No surface is safe near Michael Roman.
The genius of Michael Roman is a free falling universe of audacious color, images and ideas. Sweet courtships meets fierce gods, sex goddesses dance with vipers. Flying begins in his underground world of monsters and marvels.
Michael Roman’s sensibility is personal and playful, outrageous and informed by a universal nostalgia, courting kitsch and madness, but delivering beauty and often profundity. His imaginative mixture of traditional symbols, off-register silkscreen, deliberately clashing hot and sweet hues and a surreal mash-up of modern life energize Michael Roman’s art.
Dirty Style. Always creating. Never stopping.
