Paper art

Ridley: Sometimes the simple things are the most beautiful.

When you think of art, what comes to mind?

It’s nearly always complicated oil paintings, detailed watercolours and delicate sculptures that you think of, isn’t it? You never think of paper being the only tool you need to create beautiful works.

So when we came across the Origami Paper Art museum, we were very impressed!

While the material is simple, these art pieces are far from it!

Now this lovely find was in Tokyo airport. We were there last May and I know it seems a bit late to be posting this, but I keep looking at the pictures. They’re simply amazing. I feel a bit selfish not sharing them!

 

All of this is paper!

I laughed any time I saw a dragon in Tokyo as Godzilla always came to mind. When I was younger, we used to watch the old Godzilla movies. They were so funny, most of the time you can see the wires on the flying creatures.

Who says airports are boring? (Me…I always did! Well apart from the random bits of duty free shopping.)

Here’s a link to a blog entry that I came across with numerous different types of paper art, they are all absolutely extraordinary!

    • Godzilla is brilliant! Even now when I think of him, I can still hear that unique roar/cry in my head! Haha.The skill on display really was great! The amount of patience and time spent on each little piece is amazing. I looked around and imagined a room filled with patience, as if each piece had a person hunched over it, folding! 🙂

    • You’re very welcome!! 🙂 There’s so much you can do with paper, origami is well known but it’s only scratching the surface of everything you can do! I bet you love working with it!
