Sipho Mabona is based in Lucerne, Switzerland and made his first paper plane aged only five.
Since then he has created hundreds of his own original origami designs and gone on to participate in numerous contests -including the Red Bull Paper Wings World Finals in Salzburg 2006- and has exhibited his work in galleries from Tokyo to Vancouver.
It has been a while since I posted anything 'paper' related, so I thought I would come back with something big.
What appeals to me about Mabonas work is how simple it looks in passing, many of the same white birds strung up in formation; and this in itself has a striking visual appeal. But it is when you get closer that you see the complexity of the work that goes into each model and that is what really sets his work apart.
