  8. Andrew Grisdale Says:

    Is this real, or are they rubbings?

  9. Joost Funke Kupper Says:

    Amazing. I’m especially amazed at how well he can fold corners. Really cool!

  10. Mark Says:

    These are pretty obviously rubbings. But still cool none-the-less.

    @andrew & mark: These are not rubbings, all the lines that you can see are folds. The grey-ish effect are shadows caused by the light.

    Beautiful and amazing!

    @pieter you can rub an edge to create a ‘fold’

  14. pieter | today and tomorrow Says:

    @jm: true true, Simon Schubert calls those lines folds on his website. But I have to admit that I don’t know If he really folded the paper or if he rubbed them onto the paper …

    Nice. just amazing. i always get really really frustrated trying to fold anything

  20. Marie Says:

    It is truly amazing!! I’ve just been to the gallery upstairs berlin, where he has a solo show until the end of June and I can assure that it is “only” paper fold. How he does it stays a mystery to me, but it is more than impressive…

  21. dingobully Says:

    I like them. I’d be interested to see a video of these being made to fully understand what the artist means by “fold”. I expect you’d need some sort of sturdy underlying base or tool to create these.

    I can’t imagine how you even started this idea. Nor how long each must take… but they are fascinating to say the least! Great work!

    […] This is incredible. The treasure map has done other paper art before, but nothing like this. Simon Schubert makes these simply by tiny and very accurate folds in paper. Awesome: (HT: Today & Tomorrow) […]

    […] I’ve just rediscovered the amazing paper art by Simon Schubert. It’s not really clear if he really folds the paper or if he rubs the lines into the paper. Anyway, amazing work! Some of these pieces are more abstract than his previous work. […]
