The Cloud Leopard Returns to... Clerkenwell Design Week

Part of the Clerkenwell Design Week Fringe, don't miss Solo Kojima's incredible paper-cut sculpture The Cloud Leopard in our Gallery until 23 May. Find out more and plan your visit here.

The Cloud Leopard has been on quite a journey since it was unveiled at the Saatchi one year ago. Having travelled from Como to Paris as part of Arte&Arte’s touring exhibition, Miniartextil, it now makes a pit-stop in London before heading to Venice next month. This is a rare opportunity to see a groundbreaking example of contemporary Japanese paper-cut art by an award-winning artist. Spectacularly intricate, the Cloud Leopard is cut by hand from one sheet of paper and took Nahoko Kojima five months to complete.
