Julien Michel's Paper Projects Exceed the Limitations of Reality

Redefining reality, Julien Michel creates new worlds and landscapes through his artistic paper projects.

An origami-style technique that mimics the low-poly resolution of older video game graphics, every angle and curve that juts out is exaggerated by sharp lines and jagged edges. The multifaceted surfaces take on a crystallized appearance, making his floating island construction seem even more magical, while the masks and insects series take on a jewel-like aesthetic. Bright solid colors add to the video game style of the artwork, and the sharp polygonal shapes create interesting use of shadow.

With his paper projects, Julien Michel envisions landscapes and creatures that resemble those in reality, yet only exist in a fantasy, dream-like world.
