rollBecause now it’s … toilet-paper-roll sculptures! According to the Daily Mail:

“French artist Junior Fritz Jacquet, 30, who describes himself as a ‘creator and sculptor in paper’, then mounts his creation on steel stands and sets them loose on the art-buying world.

“The Parisian artist said his passion for paper started with school origami classes and he now takes inspiration from the unique characteristics of cardboard.

“He said: ‘I first concentrate on the construction of the eyes, then the nose, then the mouth and then the entire expression. I am trying to create funny and jovial expressions and will keep working on my technique because there is no limit to experimentation. I started to get interested in origami techniques when I was 14. At school the teacher gave us origami models to build ourselves. My connection with origami was immediate and I quickly understood that you could take it a long way from a single sheet of paper. I have perfected my technique since then. I work with every sort of paper and believe every type has its own personality. In the end, every mask is unique.'”

  2. I really dread saying this, (Ya Don’t say!) but I thought when I first began reading this it was going to say he made the face with used toilet paper and to my horror it actually kind of looks like it might have been as well.
    All in all it’s not really all that bad, but the word toilet paper really threw me for a loop of used toilet paper rolls!
