Dylan Metrano is a papercutting artist based in Bath, Maine. He grew up in Newburyport, MA, where he was an active member of the theater and music communities. He spent many years living on Monhegan Island, ten miles off the coast of Maine, drawing inspiration from its centuries‐old buildings and migratory birds.
Drawn to the simplicity of form, the boldness and relationships of colors, and cleanness of composition, Dylan’s artwork is entirely comprised of meticulously cut and carefully layered paper.
Dylan is a self‐taught artist, and has had his artwork featured on numerous album covers, book covers, posters, and in exhibitions throughout New England.
He has shown work at the Newburyport Art Association, the Firehouse Gallery (Newburyport, MA), The Lupine Gallery (Monhegan, ME), Archipelago (Rockland, ME), 3S Artspace (Portsmouth, NH), and many other galleries.
In February 2016, Scholastic published “Every Day Birds“, a children’s book which Dylan illustrated with his papercuttings.
