Jeff Nishinaka is a paper sculptor, a third-generation Japanese American born and living in Los Angeles, USA. His extraordinary art has been shown in galleries all over the world. Many international collectors, including action-movie star Jackie Chan, who owns more than 40 of his pieces, are fans of Jeff Nishinakas art works.
Jeff's Black Box, which is actually red, is based on the Greek myth of Pandora's box, which when opened unleashes evil into the world and leaves only hope in the box. “The main thing I wanted to achieve was the illusion of movement in these animals to give them a kind of life of their own,” Nishinaka says.
