Amazing, Deceptively Solid-Looking Paper Sculptures Morph Into Bizarre Forms
Beijing-based artist Li Hongbo creates mesmerizing sculptures of human forms and other objects that look like they are made of porcelain—but in fact, they are crafted from countless layers of paper.
A book editor and designer by profession, the artist’s work is inspired by the traditional Chinese paper gourd toys that he is fascinated with.
By creating a paper structure that is similar to honeycomb, he is able to produce intriguing sculptures that appear solid, but can actually be stretched and manipulated into many varied forms.
