Remarkable Tessellated Forms Emerge in Intricate Origami by Goran Konjevod

In Goran Konjevod’s meticulously crafted origami pieces, countless creases, ridges, and folds transform into stunning forms (previously). Ranging from vessels to abstract reliefs, the artist draws on his experience in mathematics and computer science to create technically precise yet visually organic sculptures.

Konjevod taps into the endless combinations of color, scale, form, and complexity to fashion an array designs from paper. “In the last year or so, I’ve been exploring a new folding technique which allows me to fold curves over pleated surfaces. Normally curve-folding involves complications because paper is not elastic, but with a pre-folded set of pleats, there is more freedom for the paper to move,” he tells Colossal. Each individual object is a miniature engineering feat, while groupings illustrate the medium’s infinite possibilities.
