Won Park Master of Origami

A friend sent me an email showing the art work of Won Park, a Master of Origami. I have never seen his work until now, but it needs to be shown everywhere. He does amazing work and all with just dollar bills. Here are some examples of his work… and some links to follow to see more..

Won Park – The Master of Origami Paper Folding

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper.

Won Park is the master of Origami. He is also called the “money folder”, a practitioner of origami whose canvas is the United States One Dollar Bill. Bending, twisting, and folding, Won Park creates life-like shapes inspired by objects living and not– both in stunning detail.

One Dollar Koi


Two Dollar Chinese Dragon

Two Dollar Spider

One Dollar Penquin

If you would like to see more, you can here, or just put his name in google and do a search. Pages of links will show up and some that will show you videos of him at work… Enjoy…

PS… the email that is currently circulating saves he lives in a renovated garbage truck…Not so, he’s living in Honolulu Hawaii, but the garbage truck looks pretty amazing and someone could live in it I suppose… ;o)
