Artist Creatively Folds Paper To Bring His Drawings To Life
The use of paper in art can be in two ways – as a flat canvas for 2D artwork or as the primary medium itself just like in origami and paper sculptures. But this Danish multidisciplinary artist was able to apply both approaches in making 3D paper drawings. HuskMitNavn, which means ‘Remember My Name’ in Danish, is a painter, street artist, and a compulsive doodler. While he has created several groundbreaking graffiti scenes and paintings under his name, his clever three-dimensional sketches are what made him stand out from other artists.
HuskMitNavn draws cartoonish figures using pen on regular papers. The 2D characters are depicted performing mundane activities such as going shopping, chilling at the beach, and eating ramen. But unlike any ordinary sketches, the drawings are brought to life in 3D form by using the folds, crumples, shreds, and torn pieces of the paper.
The long, ripped strip of the paper becomes a grocery list for the shopper and the shredded part of the paper becomes the noodles in a bowl of ramen.
By partially using the paper as part of the illustration, the artist brilliantly adds another dimension to the sketches, turning the 2D drawings to 3D artworks. You can follow the artist on Instagram to see all of his ripped paper drawings and get the latest updates on his creations.
