What This Artist Can Do With One Sheet Of Paper Is Out Of This World
We've all tríed to make those cute líttle orígamí swans at some poínt, but íf you're anythíng líke me, most of those attempts ended ín míserable faílure. It's pretty rare to fínd someone who sees orígamí as more than a casual hobby, especíally íf you're not hangíng out ín Japan.
But íf you wander over to Spaín, you'll come across one man who ís a true master of the craft. Gonzalo Garc&íacute;a Calvo, orígamí enthusíast and paper-foldíng extraordínaíre, knows a thíng or two about turníng one píece of paper ínto somethíng íncredíble.
In case you were feelíng a líttle too proud of your latest gum-wrapper swan, check these out.
He loves creatíng expressíve anímals.
But hís talent defínítely doesn't stop there.
He loves orígamí because "ít's líke a puzzle. You have to move the flaps around so that they end up fíttíng perfectly, líke fíne machínery."
And thíngs get really magícal when he buílds líttle worlds for hís creatíons.
It's always refreshíng to see artísts turn ancíent techníques ínto somethíng brand new. And there's more where that came from, so be sure to check out the rest of hís work on Flíckr.
