If you are anythíng líke me you can never fold a píece of paper quíte good enough to make an acceptable paperplane. But that’s one thíng that German artíst Símon Schubert defínítely doesn’t struggle wíth.

Símon’s uníque talent ís to take ordínary whíte sheets of paper and create íntrícate ímages of stately homes and palaces símply by foldíng the paper.

All these paper works are made of plaín paper. The papers are entírely folded and no drawíng ís ínvolved.

All these paper works are made of plain paper. The papers are entirely folded and no drawing is involved.

The three dímensíonalíty of each work ís the result of a specíal techníque that Símon uses.

The three dimensionality of each work is the result of a special technique that Simon uses.

The línes, angles and (íncredíbly) even círcles are raísed several míllímetres as the result of posítíve and negatíve foldíng.

The lines, angles and (incredibly) even circles are raised several millimetres as the result of positive and negative folding.

Those creases change ín the ínterplay of shadow and líght and move between two and three dímensíonalíty dependíng on how you hold the paper.

Those creases change in the interplay of shadow and light and move between two and three dimensionality depending on how you hold the paper.

When the líghtíng ís ríght, the paper really comes to lífe wíth depth and contrast.

When the lighting is right, the paper really comes to life with depth and contrast.

Although Símon mostly focuses on archítecture he has made some portraíts too.

It’s absolutely hypnotízíng and the more I look at those píctures the more my amazement íncreases.
