Folded paper can be transformed into amazing things, but never before have I seen such a breathtaking way to creatively use paper. German artist Simon Schubert uses the paper’s properties to transform it into an architecturally-inspired piece of art. Folding paper to shape creases that compose architecture can explain how inspiration works for some people. Instead of staring at the blank piece of paper, the artist created this fascinating set of “drawings” named Papierarbeiten (meaning “paper work” in German). The series displays different paper sheets folded in patterns to create interiors, staircases, facades or corridors. No pens or colors were used to create these inspirational works – they are simply the result of the artist’s skillful play with paper. Meticulously folding and unfolding paper creates a series of carefully designed lines that shape each stair, railing or door detail. You will be amazed by what the artist conjures from a plain sheet of paper.
