Mademoiselle Maurice

We’ve been following the wonderful work of French artist Mademoiselle Maurice as far back as early last summer. Her installations, made up of thousands of hand folded origami pieces, have temporarily covered several urban surfaces throughout France, Italy, Vietnam and Hong Kong. What a pleasant surprise it must be to stumble upon one of her colorful creations.

    Incredible. I love how casually she’s installing it on the wall. Street art is always so fun.

    Wow. I love the origami up the stairs. Up close and far away it’s still gorgeous and moving.

    I’m loving this non-permanent form of graffiti. To think of how long it must take her to hand-stick each piece of origami!
