Animals

“Animals are a very common subject in origami. I create them with a high level of realism, trying to breath life into them. Using folding techniques like box pleating, animals with geometric forms — like snails, hedgehogs, and pangolins — seem especially attractive. Most of them are crafted into three-dimensional forms. For this, the choice of paper is crucial. After the folding is completed, I paint the origami with an acrylic fixative that gives the pieces a crisp surface and strengthens the form.”
