Paper Parrots and Other Folded Paper Art

bird-1

Not quite origami, but with a similar effect, this geometric paper art from Tayfun Tinmaz has a really fun pop-art sensibility. Known as Paperpan, his art looks painstaking to create, using dozens of folded triangle and diamond shapes.  The parrots, toucans, cockatoos and other birds are joined by stags, butterflies, and other intricate and colorful creatures. Check out his Instagram page for a wonderful selection, many are also available for sale on Etsy. Via Colossal:
