Since when paper artist Cristian Marianciuc achieved the ambitious objective to complete 1,000 origami cranes in 1,000 days (2015), his skills have improved day by day.
These Marianciuc’s more recent cranes showcase his eye for detail, creative use of color, and imaginative approach to traditional origami.
“I never stopped folding and decorating new ones. It just wasn’t on a daily basis anymore,” he tells My Modern Met. “With this newly-found lack of time restraints, I focused more on exploring themes as techniques that I had wanted to explore but just didn’t have the time to do so.”
”I’m still just as fascinated with the art of origami, its symbolism and history, still as obsessed with flight and wings and feathers, I thoroughly enjoy giving myself the time to create at a slower pace, and I am finding that I am able to listen much more closely to my instinct.”
