What?! Have you seen these? You might have… this work has been all over the interweb lately, and rightly so! What appear to be plaster busts are actually bendable/stretchable sculptures made of tens of thousands of sheets of paper… sort of like giant paper slinkies… if slinkies were shaped like ‘David’!

Chinese artist Li Hongbo is the man behind this work. Wondering how he does this? Well, here he is in action:

Ah. Mazing!!!

If you are in New York before March 22, you can see these works in person at Klein Sun Gallery, 525 West 22nd St, New York, NY.
