The art of folding paper



 Folding Paper Origami Schubert Simon

Simon Schubert starts his work in the simplest way you can imagine, with a blank sheet of paper. From there, with a set of folds, he leaves the traces that come together to created drawings that look like they were drawn with invisible ink. The result, for the simplicity of the means used, is beautiful and seductive.

Born in 1976, in Cologne, Germany, he became attached to the art world from a young age. Strongly inspired by Surrealism and by Samuel Beckett, Schubert's work comprehends architectural themes, usual situations and every-day objects, for the most part. Although he uses several sophisticated materials in some of his work, it was with the simplicity of his paper folding that most of his work became known to the public.
