Origami Artwork by Cuong Nguyen

“Origami. It’s the sushi of paper.”

Much like sushi, the art of folding paper has spread abroad (from Japan) and is now enjoyed by people all over the world. With so many different artists taking part in the same craft, the results can be breathtaking, just like these pieces by self-taught artist, Cuong Nguyen of Hanoi, Vietnam.

Nguyen creates his origami using do, a traditional Vietnamese paper, making for a wonderful Vietnamese twist on the Japanese art. Amazingly, many of his works are made from a single piece of paper. Nguyen has been featured in several origami books and is also a member of the Vietnam Origami Group, a community of folded paper enthusiasts residing in Vietnam.
