I love how versatile paper is. It can be drawn on, painted on, printed on, and transformed into any shape you can imagine. With an idea and some experimenting, you can breathe life into what is essentially a blank canvas. This is what makes paper toys so great-the transformation of one shape into another. What’s also interesting is the collective nature of paper toys, they’re not restricted to just one person.
Everyone has the opportunity to participate in their creation, from the artist who designs the toy to the fan who builds it. sometimes fans become artists and artists become fans. That’s when the paper toy becomes more than just a vehicle for creativity, when the paper toy becomes more than just a vehicle for creativity, but for exchange- the exchange of ideas, culture, even friendship.
