An artist’s thinking goes beyond the rules of the world. And an artist who can turn crap into art is someone extraordinary. Japanese artist Harukiru is one such artist who has honed himself to make amazing sculptures out of packaging boxes that we see in our day to day life.
His three-dimensional pop-up pieces crafted with the kirigami technique range from detailed characters or animals to whole tiny cities. And trust me, you are going to love these. Have a look:
Harukiru is keeping an ancient art of designing paper, called “kirigami,” alive. The technique involves folding the paper and making cuts to get the desired cut out. The canvas for artwork is often a single piece of paper, being able to cut and fold results in great precision and more complicated designs.
From a dragon from Starbucks, coffee packaging to even the mermaid logo transforms into his own version of Khaleesi the artist spent good amount of his time making these sculptures and surely they turn out to be amazing.
Many more artists are into such great artwork. Here is one artist that has made an eco-mural in Venezuela from 200k bottle caps.
