The Art of Folding Paper by Lev Zienchuk
Explore the work of youth artist Lev Zienchuk in this amazing three-dimensional installation called "The Art of Folding Paper."
"As my parents were international teachers, I have lived abroad for most of my life. I was born in Seoul, Korea and grew up in KAUST, Saudi Arabia. It was in Saudi Arabia where I was introduced to the art of Origami, and I was immediately captivated by this simple and ancient art. I started off with simple models, as every artist does, and gradually evolved into creating more complex works.
My family moved to Lethbridge, Alberta in 2020 and in 2022, I started folding modular Origami works. Since then, they have become my main artistic output. I have recreated works by Origami Masters Robert J. Lang, Byriah Loper, and Kota Imai. I am very glad to have this opportunity to show my modular works, tessellations, and other single sheet works in this exhibition."
