Engineer Creates Fantastic Geometric Art from Sheets of Colored Paper

Engineer and paper folding enthusiast Matt Shlian creates intricate geometric designs from colored paper.
His artistic awakening began in ceramics. He realized that there were so many ways to express himself. “I studied glass, painting, performance, sound, and by the end, I had a dual major in ceramics and print media,” he said. “I love the immediacy of paper as a medium. I also loved geometry. Figuring out the pieces was like solving a puzzle. One of my faculty advisers started buying me pop-up books, and I started dissecting them and figuring out how they worked. The paper art took off from there.”
He is now recognized all over the world. He has many exhibits at home and abroad.
You can look for him on his Instagram and Facebook for information about his exhibitions.

The triangular thorns look sharp.

The white conical shapes have openings on top.

This can be used as a windowpane.

The white colors become browner in the middle.

Another possible windowpane design.

It looks unreal and computer-generated.

It is like sharp thorns going outward.

The dark blue wave is flowing in and out.

It looks like black daggers.

An origami masterpiece.
