"To me, origami = paper sculpture." That comes from Vietnamese born, Virginia-based artist, Dinh Truong Giang, who creates these amazing origami/folded paper sculptures, wet folding most of the models using watercolor or handmade paper.

Dinh Truong Giang actually calls the sculptures "origami models," taking inspiration from modern sculptures to paintings, Zen paintings, graphic design, other origami artists’ works. We wish he would have listed the artists, because it would be interesting to compare him to his influences.

He has shown at National Japanese American Historical Society in San Francisco, the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art in Israel, and Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver, amongst others.
