It’s great to know that there are people who almost always create content that portrays intelligence, creativity, and proof that there is no limit to the imagination. In this article, we will be looking at the work of a Japanese artist named Haruki who manages to create art with materials that would go to waste. You might remember his other works from our previous article here.
The words that are used to describe this type of art are; ‘Kiries’ and ‘Kirigami’ meaning the art of cutting paper. Kirigami is a form of paper art and a not-so-distant cousin of origami. The name comes from the Japanese words “kiru” (to cut) and “kami” (paper). However, kirigami doesn’t rely solely on the folding, as is the case with origami. Instead, those practicing kirigami readily employ both folding and a skilfull cutting of the paper. Another thing worth noting is that typically kirigami is not known for its use of glue.
Originally, Kirie has more association with traditional Japanese art, but Haruki deftly re-adapted and customized this art his own way, showing a strong predilection towards a pop-style art.
We are sure that after seeing this artist’s works you won’t be able to look at the packaging the same way!
