This Artist Creates Art Inspired By Origami And Geometry

2 min


It had to happen sooner or later…yes, origami being mated with geometry! It’s thanks to Anna Kruhelska, visual artist and a practicing architect, who developed this unique style. She’s an expert in art and design and uses her expertise and creativity to create origami in geometric patterns.

The folding paper had always fascinated Anna, the reason why she has named her Instagram page, Foldiful. And getting trained in origami and as an architect, led her to perfect her art of minimalism and architectural composition. This is what she derives her inspiration from and it’s strongly reflected in her works.

After mastering origami, Anna focused on giving it a geometric twist. The result was the creation of abstract, 3D wall reliefs that leap from their frames depending upon the angle of reflected light and the viewers’ perspective. All her works consist of paper folded into repetitive troughs and ridges in myriad patterns. The beauty of her works come to fore in fine details, highlighted in contrast by the interplay of light and shadow.

Anna uses archival, light-resistant and acid-free Mi-Teintes paper by Canson. There’re no machines involved in what she does. Every fold is done by hand that she meticulously assembles into her desired patterns. This is by no means an easy job. And what’s even more surprising is she never recreates what she has already created, that is, if she has created 10 pieces of a particular pattern, it becomes a limited edition. When this limited edition gets sold out, she never returns with the same edition, making it a unique collectors’ item. She signs all her limited edition works.

Anna maintains her own website, where she displays her works along with their prices. You can order whatever grabs you fancy online from her website. Although most of her creations are in the white paper, there’re some available in color too.
