Vietnamese paper artist Nguyễn Hùng Cường does with folded paper what some artists do with, say, a paintbrush or pencil. His highly expressive form of origami is really remarkable. Featuring mostly animals, Cường’s body of work is like a masterclass in the art of paper folding. The level of detail he achieves is really quite exceptional. Check out some past origami posts (here and here).

While this awesome series showcases California-based artist Marc Fichou’s superior folding skills, it digs deeper conceptually. In his own words, Fichou explains that “intention here is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent, thus creating a visual link between past and present.” Essentially, each origami is superimposed over the folded paper that was used to make it.
