Origami: Gonzalo Garcia Calvo

If you’re an origami aficionado, you need to see these works by Madrid-based Gonzalo Garcia Calvo. He makes the intricate, folded animals and objects when he isn’t working his regular gigs as a musician. (Note the violin and grand piano that are part of his portfolio.)

Dragon -Designed by Shuki Kato

For most of his works, he uses designs created by other origami artists, or patterns he’s adapted, but all the actual folding is his own.  (Owl, top of post: Tonight’s the Night, designed by Katsuta Kyohei) Note that all these images link back to the artist’s Flickr site, and include more information on each model.

  1. Oh wow, I love these! Thanks for bringing them to my attention. Paper arts can be so incredible and beautiful. I was at a local arts fair in my town a few months ago, and there was an origami artist there whose work completely blew my mind. I can’t imagine the patience it takes to make one of these, let alone to acquire the skills in the first place.
