New Origami Street Art by Mademoiselle Maurice

As a part of the 2013 Artaq Festival, french artist Mademoiselle Maurice presented three new pieces of paper street art in the city of Angers, France.

The colorful installations were made of 30,000 pieces of origami with the help of local school kids, adults or “leisure centers’” residents. All the folded components were prepared a couple of months before the festival during the weekly workshops organized by Mademoiselle Maurice seeking to “deepen the link between individuals who form that human network [to] which we belong and [that] we frequent every day.” [Read more...]

The Saint-Maurice cathedral was adorned with two installations—a geometric pattern on the front gate and a rainbow of origami on the front steps. A third installation, a massive origami mural, was placed on the banks of the Maine river.

Would you like to see these in your city?

Origami Street Art by Mademoiselle Maurice

French artist Mademoiselle Maurice (28) uses origami, lace, painting and embroidery to create artworks which may look naive at first sight, but actually they are deep, sensitive and connected with the events encountered during her daily life. [Read more...]

“These urban installations created with hundreds of foldings origami, grow up in the town with an important visibility thanks to their big size and their bright colors. This series was inspired to me after my year in Japan and after the events of the 2011 march 11, which induced the explosion of the nuclear plant of Fukushima when I was there. After this events and some readings, I decided to participate to the tribute for Sadako Sasaki, added to this my consideration for the Japanese people and all the victims of nuclear disasters.”
