About Paper Boyo

Where most people see buildings, landscapes, or everyday items, Rich McCor, aka paperboyo, sees a canvas for his masterpieces. The London-based artist playfully breaks down the boundaries between art and reality as he transforms landmarks with a signature appeal. His trick is to create detailed black paper cutouts that he places in the foreground of scenic photographs to introduce a fun, eccentric new element. This charming artwork has connected with a vast audience on social media, where paperboyo boasts 460K+ followers. This year, he had the added excitement of partnering with Will Smith in Budapest to promote his new movie Gemini Man.
