Beijing-based artist Li Hongbo specializes in transforming paper into incredible three-dimensional sculptures. The paper sculptures are crafted from thousands of sheets of paper that are glued together and cut into human busts and objects.
Inspired by paper gourds made from layers of glued paper that can expand into different shapes and close back into the original form, Hongbo has built off this concept to create flexible sculptures. The end results are remarkable paper sculptures that play with viewers’ perceptions.
