Matt Shlian | Beautifully intricate paper sculptures

Loving the strong geometric shapes in these paper sculptures made by Michigan-based artist Matt Shlian, who fittingly refers to himself as a Paper Engineer. When seeing the end result, it’s hard to imagine these sculptures once started out as a flat piece of paper. Some of the works involved a lot of planning and preparation, while others were made as he let himself be guided by the material, on which Shlian says: “Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifest in drawings and three dimensional forms.“

A video of his work process can be seen below:
