This beautiful origami art comes from Kota Hiratsuka, who is described as a paper engineer. Who knew?

What's clear after looking at this collection of incredible origami art is that Hiratsuka can call himself whatever he wants. This series of eight features a wonderful array of colors along with a distinctly geometric style. Instead of selling the actual finished origami art, Hiratsuka plans to sell templates for the art that will allow people at home to create themselves.

Origami comes from the Japanese words "ori" which means folding and "kami" which means paper. It is an ancient Japanese art form that started in the 17th century and, with this as evidence, continues to influence art to this day.
