The series titled Origami Modulars by Daniel Kwan is intricate, colorful and delicate. Each sculpture in the collection has been crafted out of paper. Cut into complex geometric shapes, the pieces were then interlocked together to create eye-catching three dimensional forms. Inspired by Singapore origami artist Francis Ow Mun Yin's simple locking-mechanism concept, Kwan's creations are much more modern and detailed.

Often using common printer paper, the Origami Modulars by Daniel Kwan are anything but common. The recent Rutgers University graduate has been folding paper since the age of five. Since 2002, he delved into creating his own unique modular origami sculptures. Since then, his portfolio has burgeoned to include a slew of paper craft creations that continue to become more and more elaborate. He often accompanies his artworks with detailed explanations.
