The world was first introduced to the series Ribbonesia by Baku Maeda, an artist based in Sapporo, Japan, back in 2010. Since creating simple adorable animal characters out of ribbons, he has gone on to make much more intricate designs. Still working in the vein of such creatures with the same material, under the same series name, the Japanese artist has created a collection of intricate masks made entirely out of ribbons.
Dark and mysterious, the new works that make up Ribbonesia by Baku Maeda are quite arresting. Displayed on wooden mannequins wearing dramatic capes, the ribboned creations look like something for a masquerade ball or a secret society meeting. Of course, they are solely works of art.
