I’m a HUGE fan of paper art, paper engineering, paper sculptures, whatever you want to call it. I’ve always loved paper. I love its fragility, its strength and its different textures but most of all I love that you can do anything with it. It’s so useful and so mundane that when someone as incredible as Benja Harney decides to use it as his main medium of choice it really makes you rethink the beauty and potential of just about anything.
But to make something gorgeous out of something so plain and one dimensional is a skills set in itself. One, I myself sadly do not possess, which probably adds to my love for the art form.
So enough of my fan girl ramblings. In honour of Benja Harney speaking at Semi-Permanence this year in Sydney (which I’m crossing my fingers my workplace sends me to) here is some awesome paper artwork by Benja Harney.

Harney’s works range from adverts, packaging, bespoke creations, and pop-up books. His work is so loved right now that big time clients such as Hermes, Kylie Minogue, Desktop Magazine and Telstra can’t get enough of him… Talk about living the dream!
