We have all seen the beautiful and creative street graffiti from around the world but we hadn’t seen Origami Street Art before this. Mademoiselle Maurice is a origami artist born in Paris, learned the art of Origami in Japan and chose Paris, Italy to be blessed by her street artworks. Her regular origami street art installations usually have thousands of origami neatly packed and colorfully placed in a way that amazes even the colorblind.
While many of her counterparts choose museums to showcase their work, she chooses the good ‘ol streets to showcase hers.
Her creations combine thousands of folded paper shapes, taking days to make and assemble.
She was in Tokyo during the earthquake of 2011, and the tragic events inspired her work.
She hates to see the monotonous colors in the world and wants to make it more beautiful.
Many of the Mademoiselle Maurice’s street art installations require a little more effort that she possibly could handle by herself so she works with local schools and organizations, relying on volunteer help from hundreds of students and other people, to fold the thousands of paper creations.
