Warren King is a talented artist who specializes in creating artful cardboard designs. He was first inspired to make the sculptures when he went to China to visit his family and explore his background.

Settling into his grandparent's village, he spent his time meeting its inhabitants and getting to know them. Following his return, he decided to bring those he met back, by translating them into incredibly detailed cardboard designs. In doing so, he pushes the boundaries of what's thought possible from the material -- using it to craft everything from pleats and designs in clothing to expressive faces that speak to the character of the people he aims to represent.

Lifelike in size, Warren King's cardboard designs are often displayed together, taking viewers to a version of the village that he once visited.
