Magnum design poster, made from little pieces of apple slices , chocolates bits and apple chops , dyed with coffee and food coloring , the latest in a series of projects for Philippines based Visual Artist and paper cutter Patrick Cabral .
The poster featured much of his present preoccupation combining his own peculiar style of kirigami ( Japanese paper cutting art form ) a little more of new experiences gained from his foray into realm of matte artistry.
To help commemorate the occasion, Magnum Philippines had tapped Patrick to help create art inspired by “Make Your Own “ Magnum’s promise of creating bespoke pleasure using various ingredients, dips and sauces.
But picking patrick was no chance. His previous works stood out. They include an on-going series on instagram ,exploring various animal form in layered papers , cut to a delicate execution and stacked to reveal a complete structure .
” I want to provide a contrast of soft materials to a predator , patrick had said “also to venture more on the endangered species in the future, and hopefully show how fragile some species are and how close they are to extinction “
Magnum opened its third Magnum Pleasure Store at SM Seaside City in Cebu, Philippines, last November .
It’s a first of its kind artwork that pushes the boundaries of paper cutting. The project took 80 hours to cut papers, 3 days to paint the layers and 1 day to add buffer between the layers so the depth will be more pronounced. Each paper color is precisely matched to a specific topping found at the Magnum Pleasure Store and represents the myriad of customized pleasures found in Magnum Cebu.
