“Origami meets street art.”- 08.18.06
I am a big fan of paper, the more i work digitally, the more i need to flip through a newspaper. There’s something about that tactile sensation of playing with a piece of paper, doodling in a notebook, inventing new origami… so you can only imagine how much i love this series by Shin Tanaka. More pictures of the event below, as covered by RUGenius, who wandered the depths of Berlin, in the name of NOTCOT, last night - stumbling upon everything from an opera on a pirate ship to the red light district’s murals to blue mohawk bartenders followed by camera crews for a reality tv show - and survived.
“Origami meets street art. Less Rain presents Shin Tanakaâ€™s collection of paper Origami. Designed by himself and other Japanese and European graffiti artists and illustrators, he created new facets of these iconic objects. The special clue: Everybody can create an own version of the paper toys T-Boy, Gritty or Spike. The artist puts the paper toy templates on his website so that everyone can download, customise, build and display an own individual character.” —- more from Less Rain’s Blog.
