Origami Artists Who Take Things To The Extreme

Dinh Truong Giang, Origami Master


Origami master Dinh Truong Giang uses the phrase “less is more” to describe his mission statement. This rings particular true with his minimalist yet exception simple handcrafted pieces. Known as the godfather of origami, Giang gained his notorious reputation by perfecting a style of origami called wet folding. Wet folding is done by dampening the paper surface to allow it to be more malleable to curve and make distinct features. This allows GIang to take his pieces far beyond simple folds and create incredibly realistic designs like the polar bear above. Giang describes his work as simplistic, saying, “When one pays too much attention to the techniques, he or she tends to forget about the goal is to breathe life into the final piece.”
