Andrea Russo - Paper Sculpture

Andrea Russo is a young artist who creates beautifully folded and shaped paper sculptures in Naples, Italy. It was difficult to choose just one photo for this Fab Friday feature, but since we're at the height of beach season here in Delaware, this gem titled The Great Wave off Kanagawa seems most appropriate.

神奈川沖浪裏 - The Great Wave off Kanagawa

The original Great Wave that inspired him is a highly-regarded woodblock print from the early 19th century by Japanese artist, Katsushika Hokusai.

There is much to see on Andrea's Flickr stream... origami tessellations, chiaroscuro (light and dark contrasting folds), lamps, figures, and more.
