Artist uses a special folding technique to give these animal origami sculptures their curves

Hanoi-based origami artist, Hoang Tien Quyet, employs a folding technique that lets him breathe life and realism into otherwise cold and impersonal geometric sculptures.

Called ‘Wet-Folding’, the technique was developed by the grandmaster of origami himself, Akira Yoshizawa. It involves dampening the paper with water to make it easier to manipulate, allowing the origami artist to include features such as hair and skin folds. For Hoang, he uses this crafting style to make life-like sculptures of foxes, cats, rats, and many others.

Having been involved in the art form since he was a kid, Hoang has co-authored two books on the subject and often gets invited to speak in international origami conventions. You can purchase some of his artworks over on Etsy.
