I wonder how many paper cuts Ingrid Siliakus suffered for each of her awe-inspiring paper creations. I mean, just take a second to appreciate the incredible intricacy involved in each papercraft architectural design, and you will understand why I ask what may seem a silly question.

Ingrid Siliakus, an Amsterdam-based paper-Einstein, takes inspiration from artistic greats like M.C. Escher and Antoni Gaudi. According to Papierarchitectuur.nl, “To design a pattern from scratch, the artist needs the skills of an architect to create a two-dimensional design, which, with the patience and precision of a surgeon, becomes an ingenious three-dimensional wonder of paper.”

Ingrid Siliakus definitely needs to update her resume to include the titles Surgeon, Architect and overall Origami Genius.
