News__ Li Hongbo’s Paper Sculptures

Paper vs. plaster

They say it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something, and artist Li Hongbo has achieved that status. We’re not sure how long it takes to glue thousands of sheets of paper together, but we’re guessing it’s a full-time commitment. It pays off: Hongbo’s extreme devotion has allowed him to create these amazing flexible paper sculptures. Seeing something that looks completely solid, and then suddenly, watch it expand and twist is really boggling our brains. It would be rad to get the chance to play around with one of these sculptures, though were not sure if Hongbo would be down. Maybe we’ll just hang Chinese lanterns at our next party and call it a day.

See how Li Hongbo’s flexible paper sculptures work in a video below.
