Meet the Finnish origami artist who turns brilliant ideas into reality, simply by folding paper.
23-year-old Juho Könkkölä began folding origami models when he was just eight years old. More than a decade of practice has made him super skilled in his chosen endeavor.
Making paper characters inspired from history, folk tales, books, movies, mythologies, and more, every piece of art Könkkölä makes is folded from a single square sheet of paper—and there’s never any cutting involved.
Origami is not always an easy pursuit for this Lapland University art graduate, with the creation of just one character often taking many months of work‚and sometimes thousands of folds. Luckily, Könkkölä finds the creative process theraputic.
