At age 5, Sipho Mabona created his very first paper airplane. By the time he was 20, when he had run out of designs for paper airplanes, he looked to origami to help him visualize more original designs. Now, based in Luzern, Switzerland, Mabona creates beautiful origami designs that have won him many awards and much praise. With the help of a team of 10 people financed by an Indiegogo campaign for $26,000, he was able to turn a single 50 x 50 ft piece of paper into a life-size origami elephant. [Read more...]

His faces have a distinctly geometric form that is otherworldly and beautiful. Yes, this takes practice. [Read more...]

Jobe Brown Paper Art 15

Young Canadian artist Jobe Brown has an obsession with fantasy and paper. It’s a happy combination which sees him folding 3D characters from hits like Harry Potter, Spongebob Squarepants and Pokemon in his uniquely patterned style of origami. He’s made a winged Golden Snitch, Mr Krabs and a load of Pokemon characters (gotta catch ‘em all!), each one cleverly redesigned to fit the modular methods he uses to create them. [Read more...]

1 Nguyen Hung Cuong

At the young age of five, Nguyễn Hùng Cường was first introduced to the art of paper folding. He learned mostly from books and by the age of 10 he began creating his own original designs. As many great origami artists do, Cường challenged himself to use only one piece of paper for most of his designs. He often creates his models on a Vietnamese handmade paper called Dó. Inspired by the techniques of many origami artists before him, Cường joined the community of origami enthusiasts known as Vietnam Origami Group in 2005. [Read more...]

Starwarigami: Make an X-Wing and Others from Paper

Friday 11.09.2012 , Posted by

Few things excite the inner Star Wars fan more than the vehicles of that galaxy long ago. Martin Hunt is one of those fans and has spent a considerable amount of time re-creating everything from X-Wings and Tie-Fighters, to AT-AT’s and the Millennium Falcon itself. Hunt has been progressively improving his designs, adding more and more details. His X-wing, which began as a fairly simple design, now sports a cockpit, defined engines and wingtip cannons. It’s so impressive he’s imagined these designs out of one piece of paper, you would think he almost had… the Force… [Read more...]

A Rainbow of Origami Street-Art

Friday 05.25.2012 , Posted by

Like rainbows of flowers popping from the walls of the city, Parisian artist Mademoiselle Maurice’s artwork adds color and vibrance to otherwise stark places… and in this case, she does it with folded paper. Unlike any graffiti/street art we’ve seen before, this artist uses hundreds of hand folded origami shapes in various colors to create her staccato of hues across cement and wood walls around the city of Paris. Though her work may at first appear simple and even naive, they soon reveal themselves as beautiful catalysts for our deeper connection to the city surrounding them. [Read more...]
