Paper Sculptures by Matt Shlian

Paper tends to be a trend here on Good for the Brain. It’s curious how paper art boomed in these late years. A medium tough by many to me outdated and replaced by digital screens.

Today we bring for your amusement and ours Matt Shlian. Matt is a veteran in paper sculptures and so much he entitled itself as “paper engineer”.

I recommend vividly checking out his webpage and the video section. Be prepared to spend an hour or so just amazed by his work.

“The magic of Shlian’s paper sculptures is as much in the finished result as in the process; every snip and fold is a meditation of sorts, paying reverance to the material, its kinetic energy, and its infinite potential.” By Trendland

“As a paper engineer my work is rooted in print media, book arts and commercial design. Beginning with an initial fold, a single action causes a transfer of energy to subsequent folds, which ultimately manifest in drawings and three dimensional forms.

Guided by wonder, my work is made because I cannot visualize its final realization; in this way I come to understanding through curiosity.”
