Origami Artists Who Take Things To The Extreme

Ross Symons’ Year Of Origami


Origami artist Ross Symons challenged himself to make a new piece each day for 365 days. He documented his journey on Instagram. He quickly gained over 100 thousand users and decided to make it his full time gig. He launched his brand, White on Rice, in 2014 and now works with clients to create original origami pieces for social media and in-person installations. Ross was working a regular 9-5 job in Cape Town, South Africa and took up origami as a hobby. He says, “I was always folding little paper creatures which littered my desk at work, and I kept challenging myself to create more intricate pieces.” His project was his year of new pieces and now four years later, he still hasn’t stopped.
