Wondrous Ribbon Creatures Come Alive

We’re in awe of these spectacular ribbon creations, all artfully designed and created by Japanese duo Baku Maeda and Toru Yoshikawa. We’ve posted about Quilling before, which is a the art of rolling and twisting paper, but ribbon art is new to us. Indeed, the duo go by the moniker “Ribbonesia”, and take the simple medium to amazing new heights with their lifelike and richly details creations. The fox and deer are our favorite, but we’re enamored with the cacti garden as well. Fascinating and impressive work, Via Colossal:

“Just as a painter would use hundreds of brush strokes, ribbon forms can also be made from a variety of twists, bends and folds. They become paintings as much as they are sculptures.”
