Benja Harney: Paper Engineer

Mastering the Art of Making Paper Sculptures

Posted by Gestalten—08/2015

Benja Harney is a self-taught paper engineer living and working in Sydney, Australia. He makes anything and everything out of paper, creating pop-up books, paper sculptures, installations, illustrations, packaging, fine art, fashion, animation, and set designs out of the delicate material.

As he shares, paper is his passion as the humble medium inspires and challenges him every time he sits down at his cutting mat. The result of his endlessly inventive craft comes in the shape of flowers, animals, masks, clothing, and much more. They are both strong and delicate, complex and simple. To see more examples of his work you can visit his website, and to discover more contemporary design with paper check out the book Papercraft 2.
