Tahiti Pehrson - Psaligraphist extraordinaire

I don't normally write about any comments I get regarding my blog posts but this week I had an enlightening comment from an Artist called Tahiti Pehrson. I must admit I hadn't heard of him before  until he saw the article I posted on Psaligraphy by Karen Bit Vejle and he commented,

'Beautiful work. I had never heard that word: Psaligraphy. Had no idea I was a Psaligraphist.'

I was intrigued to see what he did so I checked out his website  and found his amazing work. 
"Yes, you certainly are a Psaligraphist Tahiti", although the Dictionary definition for Psaligraphy is, 'the art of cutting silhouettes out of paper' which doesn't quite seem to explain the intricacies of your work in my opinion. 

Tahiti is from Northern California and his recent pieces have explored the interconnectivity between the fragility of paper and physical structures. Many of his pieces can be seen at his exhibitions in the States and the UK as well as as installations in shops, Art Galleries and studios.

For more information about his upcoming exhibitions check out his website. www.tahitipehrson there may be one on near you.
