Paper cut artist and set maker Hattie Newman is selling the intricate paper models of buildings from her Canon City installation to raise money for War Child. The original 3m x 3m set was commissioned by creative agency Imagination for camera brand Canon’s Expo in Paris. It features a mix of landmark buildings and architectural styles, from the Eiffel Tower and the Chrysler building, to colourful rows of houses in Amsterdam and Brazil.
“I often find at the end of projects that I have to throw away lots of the things I’ve made,” Hattie says. “It’s a waste, but I just don’t have space to store them.” As the Canon City models took around six weeks to build, Hattie felt throwing them away was “extra silly” so decided to sell them off to raise money for charity.
“War Child is a small charity based near where I live, that focuses on helping young victims living in war zones. I was lucky to grow up in a happy, safe environment, and feel it’s so unfair that children get caught in conflict around the world, robbed of their basic right to grow up safely.”
The Canon City project is shown in detail on Hattie’s website, designed by Art. Department along with other projects for TfL, Childline, Ordnance Survey, The Guardian Weekend, Wagamama, IBM, and perhaps her best-known project — the paper model London Olympic Park she made for the park’s official map.
