The work of Hoang Tien Quyet may boggle the minds of those who appreciate the common vein of origami art. He instead uses a unique technique known as wet folding, which was pioneered by the late origami master Akira Yoshizawa. This technique allows artists to introduce more details in the form of flowing, curved creases that result in more rounded forms.

Yet what is surprising about Hoang Tien Quyet's chosen origami style is that in spite of its fluid looks, the sculptures are still very much rigid and stiff. In terms of the unconventional look, he writes, "I like working with new and fresh ideas, and always try to breathe life and my personality into my models. I hope people can also feel that from my work."
