Stunning Folded Paper Art – Simon Schubert

We have already seen wonderful sculptures that can be made out of a single sheet of paper, but you probably didn’t know that it’s also possible to draw amazing pictures without using paint or any tools other than hands for paper folding. At first sight, these very detailed pictures, which sell for up to £3,800, seem to have been drawn with pencil but only when you notice that Simon’s gallery web address ends with “papierarbeiten.html” you understand how amazing his works really are. A German artist named Simon Schubert (born 1976) has spent two years perfecting the art of folding paper, and now it takes him up to a week to create each of his elaborate masterpieces. “The first attempt was not really so successful, took quite a white to get the technique perfect” – says Simon. The funny part is that he often had to convince people his pictures are not painted. “Most of the people who see the work are surprised that the pictures are created by folding paper, they don’t believe it when I tell them. Many of them think I’ve used paint or pencil to create the affect of light and shade. But when they realize the pictures are actually folded they are quite impressed.”
