Wet-folded, curved origami makes beautiful paper animal sculptures

If you love the art of origami, then you'll understand that most is geometrical, relying on the folding of paper to create interesting geometric shapes. However, when it comes to Vietnamese artist Quyet Hoang Tien, his approach is a little different. He takes the ancient Japanese art of paper folding to another level, using a special technique known as ‘Wet Folding’, to create beautiful paper animal sculptures.

This is simply where Quyet dampens each piece of paper before he begins the folding process. This allows him to create smooth curves instead of the typical sharp lines of ordinary origami. The results are pretty special, as you can see. With curved unicorns and intricately realistic humming birds, Quyet produces a whole catalogue of different creatures. Discover more on his portfolio.
