Playing with both proportion and a viewer's perception, these folded artworks by Marcelo Daldoce are visually striking and sculptural in their aesthetic. The illustrator's work "focuses on the terrain beyond the conventional two-dimensional landscape of paper and canvas."

When creating his pieces, the artist aims to bring life to flat surfaces and to twist his viewer's mind with images that make one question reality and illusion. Marcelo Daldoce's art is both visually bold and thought-provoking thanks to his painted and 3D manipulation techniques that make his paintings stand apart.

The artist mixes painted images of human subjects with architectural paper folds that add a multi-dimensional element to each of his unique compositions. Furthermore, these folds mean that no two of his pieces are alike.
