First up is Benja Harney, an amazing paper artist based in Sydney. I first saw Benja present at Field Trip in Melbourne last year, where he talked about a big project that he had just completed for Kylie Minogue – a most amazing pop-up book that she commissioned for her worldwide concert tour. In Sydney last week, Benja showed us how he designed and created a series of interlocking paper shapes which was just fantastic and beautiful.
Here is a selection of his other work:
Benja says on his website:
Through my business, Paperform, I have been dedicated to engineering high-end pop-up books and crisp paper constructions professionally for 6 years now spanning a variety of applications: fine art, advertising, magazine illustration, fashion and packaging.
Paper is such a humble medium to work with. It inspires and challenges me every time I sit down at my cutting mat.
I strive for creativity and perfection in every project I undertake.
