History of Shadow Cutting

Long before photography, Silhouette Art was a form of portraiture.

The name Silhouette is from Etienne de Silhouette, an eighteenth century French Minister of Finance to Louis XV. He hand cut out pensions and luxuries thus the term “cut out” or “minimal.“

From its heyday in the 18th century, the practice is waning, in part because there are only a few dozen silhouette artists of varying technical ability in the world.

In Singapore, there are only two professional silhouette artists, so contact us today to avoid disappointment!

Why Shadow Cutting?

 

Each silhouette is cut out entirely by free hand. The artist simply looks at the profile of the subject and start cutting their exact likeness from black paper. Every silhouette is an original one of a kind art work, signed by the artist.

Because of it’s novelty, it’s often a popular activity not just for children but for adults too! More importantly, it only takes a few minutes wait to own your very own master piece.

Price: $250/hour, Subsequent hours: $200


How many kids can you cater for?

Ideally an hour of shadow cutting should cater for up to 25 children / adults regardless of complexity.



What age group does it cater to?

The best part about shadow cutting and caricatures is that they cater for all ages. Whether they are 6, 16, or 60 years old, shadow cutting is entertaining to watch for everyone, and everyone wants a piece!
