Origami master

Sipho Mabona was five years old when he folded his first paper airplane. In 2000 after having folded planes for fifteen years Mabona ran out of paper airplane designs to fold and turned to origami hoping it would enable him to come up with original designs.

Sipho Mabona is a professional origami artist. Recently he created a life-size elephant from one piece of paper. His work demonstrates a wide range of different styles of origami, from extremely complicated figurative designs to abstract geometric shapes.

More on Sipho Mabona here http://www.mabonaorigami.com/ we will share more of his artworks soon as we love his work!
