It’s been at least a month since we last shared some examples of awesome origami, which is just about too long. Vietnamese paper artist Nguyễn Hùng Cường lives and works in Hanoi uses a special Vietnamese handmade paper called Dó to create his impressively dynamic origami pieces.
“Cường tells All Things Paper that he began folding around the age of five or six and although his work has been featured in numerous popular books on origami, he has not yet made it his full-time career.”
In creating these mobile forms in his series “Homebodies”, Calvin Ma wanted to express his love for action figures and their ability to captivate and innovate stories to comfort us. His ceramic and stoneware sculptures combine stationary architectural structures and roving vehicles with the human (and kitty) form in a mashup of irregularity and contradictions, but still retaining that facial hint of childlike inquisitiveness, ready to make up an entirely new adventure.
