A few weeks back I wrote a post about some of my favourite 3D paper art & sculpture artists and introduced you to the likes of Zoe Bradley, Zim & Zou, Linus & the Feel Good Factory and Vegan Taxidermy.
Today it’s all about home-grown 3D paper art skills with a look at some incredible Aussie talent.
First up is one of my personal favourites – the fabulous Benja Harney. Benja is a paper engineer based out of Sydney and his paper skills are every paper nerd’s dream. He worked with luxury fashion house Hermes for a Christmas window in 2009 as well as with Kylie Minogue on an incredible deluxe limited edition pop-up book for her Goddess tour in 2011. Benja’s work is always precision perfect and his love of colour and fun really comes through. Most recently he was commissioned by David Jones stores to create 3 magnificent paper gowns to celebrate their 175th birthday party. AMAZING! It’s difficult to narrow down some favourites to show you here, so do yourself a favour and check out Paperform (Benja’s website) to marvel at his 3D paper art.
