Charming Cut Paper Silhouettes Playfully Transform Famous US Landmarks

Neon Museum, Las Vegas

King Kong has invaded New York while Marilyn Monroe makes a rare appearance at Las Vegas’ Neon Museum. Not really, of course, but cut paper artist Rich McCor imagines a world where they cleverly interact with the surrounding landscapes. He’s traveled to Europe and the UK, altering what he sees with simple shapes and black paper. “I’ve been fortunate enough to turn a hobby into a career of traveling the world,” McCor recently told us in an email, “and at the same time doing what I love to do—transforming landmarks with a sense of humor.”

McCor is now in the United States applying his iconic aesthetic to the East and West coast. Spider Man traverses New York skyscrapers with ease as a pair of wings transforms the Stratosphere in Las Vegas into a giant butterfly. If you were previously unfamiliar with McCor’s travels destinations, his cut outs provide an amusing introduction. And even if you had visited locales like Central Park many times, his strategically-posed paper allows you to look at it in a whole new way. Follow him on Instagram to see where he’ll go next and what creative scene his imagination will lead to!
