Origami by Himanshu (Mumbai, India)


Orukami, or Origami, is the ancient art of paperfolding. Oru means ‘to fold’ and kami means ‘paper’. It is simple in its approach; tools: hands, medium: paper. Yet, a world of artistic expression lies within the humble confines of this sheet of paper.

I stumbled onto Origami in 1989 and remain devoted to its undying charm to this day. Over the years, I have enjoyed folding many paper sculptures using Origami techniques. In particular, I have developed my own style of monumental Origami. These large Origami sculptures have been installed at various art and educational institutions. I state humbly that there are 5 world records to my name.

My work has been seen in art shows and events around the world. I have also worked with brands like Dell, Audi, Hermes, MTV, Lacoste and many others for their Online/ Print/ TV advertising campaigns and visual merchandising.

Teaching Origami is an enjoyable and fulfilling activity. I have shared this art in schools, colleges, engineering & management institutes, corporate offices, hospitals and institutions for challenged children.

I have lived in Mumbai (India) and Lodz (Poland) but have traveled to several countries because of Origami.

Welcome to my page. I hope you enjoy my musings, renditions, original sculptures and diagrams for a few favorite Origami designs.
