Utterly Amazing Paper Sculptures

Image credit: 

Artist Cheong-ah Hwang's amazing paper creations almost look like origami upon first glance, but when you really start looking at her pop-culture dioramas, you soon realize that that amazing level of detail can only be created with a dedicated routine of cutting, folding and gluing until the paper actually becomes a sculpture.

Cheong-ah started developing her art form when she was only a child spending time at her parents' South Korean printing shop.

Her subjects tend to be things that everyone can identify as they often are based on classic fairy tales, superheroes and other pop culture stories. If you really love her artwork and would love to be able to look at it every day in your own home, then head over to her Etsy shop, Papernoodle, where you can order your very own, one-of-a-kind paper sculpture.
