Back in the day, folding paper fortune-tellers were one of the greatest possessions a child could have, providing hours of fun and enough practice to (maybe) tell someone's fortune. Folding paper and drawing on it might not be a new concept, however, artist Ben Avlis managed to breathe a new life into it by creating stunning transforming art pieces.

Avlis creates an unexpected and eye-catching metamorphosis by folding his work in such a way, that the audience sees one figure when the paper is folded, and an expansion of it once the canvas is stretched out. When a quick motion is applied, it creates a 'popping' effect as if his works suddenly come to life. Quite fascinating, isn't it?

Dolphins actually use pufferfish as a drug to get high, so this is fitting
