Paper Artist Creates Three Dimensional Paper Figures Of Olympic Athletes

Raya Sader Bujana, Barcelona based paper artist, in collaboration with photographer Garcia Mendez has released a series of figures of athletes crafted from plane paper in dedication to the highly anticipated Olympic games. The white figures are three dimensional and layered with more up to 150 cutouts for each individual piece. The aerodynamic layering effect is made by 3mm separators which resemble the inner muscle structure of the human anatomy, signifying the toned and trained athletes that compete in the greatest sporting event in the world. 

The delicate structure of the plane paper figures are engineered to show the strength of the athletes and the potential of the medium and how a crafty imagination can turn sheets of paper into models of sporting champions. More of Bujana’s work can be followed in All Thing Paper where she describes how she made these paper figures and the artist also has a collection of origami jewellery in her Etsy shop.
