POZ is the artist tag and signature of illustrator, graphic designer, professor, and paper-cut artist Peter O. Zierlein.

His editorial client list includes The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Nation, Stern, Der Spiegel, Die Zeit, Le Figaro, Le Monde Diplomatique, and other national and international publications.

For the last few years, Zierlein, a native of Germany, has been creating an extensive body of intricate paper cuts. “I draw with a knife,” POZ says of his technique of cutting angular and sharp forms into folded paper to create iconic symmetrical imagery that become illustrations, posters, patterns, public art, murals, paper cut installations, zines, postcards, and greeting cards.
