Cardboard Box Sculptures Are Detailed Works of Upcycled Art
Beautiful and inventive new work from artist Monami Ohno featured on MyModernMet.
Using the recycled paper products, Ohno crafts an eclectic array of cardboard art. Some of her most impressive sculptural works of art are high-spirited creatures and monsters (including a miniature Godzilla), realistic representations of food and drink, functioning shoes, and elaborate vehicles. Each piece is composed of multiple parts intricately pieced together, allowing Ohno to impressively achieve various textures, patterns, and features. Given the level of detail apparent in each piece of upcycled art, the simplicity of Ohno’s tools may surprise you. To make her striking sculptures , she uses only a pair of scissors, a standard box cutter, a ruler, glue, and masking tape.
