Available in a wide range of colors, textures, and formats, paper is today omnipresent in the everyday lives of a good number of people, but is equally widely used in field of art.
Paper can serve as a support for painting or drawing, be employed to make origami, constitute the basis for collage or papier-mâché works, or quite simply for writing.
Canada is the second largest exporter of paper in the world, after the United States. Its production amounts to some 30 million tons per year, with a majority pulp and newsprint paper.
