I personally love to see the works of artists who dare to be different and who prefer to use unique objects to create their masterpieces. And the artist who has emerged a winner by daring to be different is German artist Simon Schubert who makes unique artworks by folding papers. His beautiful artworks look like paintings with a 3D effect. In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, he said: “Most of the people who see the work are surprised that the pictures are created by folding paper. They don’t believe it when I tell them.” Seriously, it is hard to believe that these designs are not created by using pencils or paints. It takes the 33year old just a week to create these amazing artworks, but it was not so easy in the beginning. It took the budding artist two years to master this technique! But his patience and efforts have definitely paid off as his artworks fetch up to £3,800 ($6,000)!
But for those who still doubt his skill, you can check out his display at the Upstairs Gallery in Berlin, where one room has been covered in 150 of his designs – giving the impression the whole room is folded. I am sure you will come out appreciating the young man’s talent.
