It’s no secret that Japanese are the masters of paper art as it was them who invented origami a thousand years ago. But Japanese artist Haruki takes paper-folding to another level with his impressive product packaging art. Instead of using standard paper, Haruki uses snack boxes and cups to create amazing paper sculptures.
Traditional origami only involves paper folding so cutting, gluing, or marking is not allowed. However, another type of paper folding art called kirigami allows folding, cutting, and gluing the paper to achieve the desired shape. Haruki’s art falls into the latter. Using various product packaging, he creates intricate figures and miniature sculptures by cutting and folding empty snack boxes. The talented artist doesn’t use glue in crafting his amazing designs ranging from robots and classical warriors to vintage cars and houses.
