Today I'd like to introduce you to an artist whose work could possibly be described as papercraft, but with a distinctly non-traditional flair. Spotted on the ever-resourceful NOTCOT, Brooklyn-based artist Mu Pan creates everything from striking paintings to what you see above, which he calls "origamu". If you like it, be sure to check out his paintings and sketches on his homepage as well (don't miss "Satsuma Braves" from his Satsuma Rebellion collection).
One thing about Mu Pan's origamu is that it seems to communicate movement in a way that most papercraft does not. The stocky, often squareish designs are certainly iconic, but I definitely love the fluidity of the lines in these pieces. Do you prefer the classical forms of papercraft, or do you find yourself more drawn towards these innovative figures?
