Paper artist Tayfun Tinmaz lives in Istanbul. He is a graduate of Marmara Fine Arts Painting Department. His design story started with the tropical bird series he interpreted by being inspired by nature. The works of the artist, who deals with various subjects of nature and popular culture, came together under the name Paperpan. Color, harmony and three dimensions come to the fore in the forms that are abstracted from the environment and brought before the audience. Creating three-dimensional units from paper material, the artist uses these units to create his designs. The designs, which are generally in the center of a minimal background with plain and wide spaces, are formed by the combination of these paper units.
