Diagrams: Cat

Origami 2017/03/20

Who am I?

I am well known on the internet under the nickname of MadFolder. The story of the Mad Folder is told in two parts.

The first part began in 1997 with my fascination for this art, through my first, fairly classic creations in 2002, and expositions from 2003 until 2013. I spent almost 18 years folding every day, deepening all styles and techniques and thus refining my artistic qualities.

This passionate immoderation opened the door to the second part. Indeed, it was in 2014 that I became a Professional Origami Artist: my spirit freed itself from conventions and influences. From then on my creations became my image, a part of my personality, which knows imperfection, because the search for perfection leaves no room for the imagination in creation. My soul as an artist learned to suffer from this contradiction, because the success of an act is not linked to its perfection.

The design of this cat comes from my classic period of intermediate level creations. I offer two images: the original model and an improved version, both derived from the same diagrams. I obtained the latter through more modeling, and I invite you to do the same.

Qui suis-je ? L’histoire du Plieur Fou se raconte en deux parties.

La première, de la fascination pour cet art en 1997, en passant par les premières créations en 2002, assez classique, les expositions dès 2003 et ainsi jusqu’en 2013. Quasiment dix-huit années à plier tous les jours, approfondissant tous les styles et techniques et ainsi affiner mes qualités artistiques.

Cette démesure passionnelle ouvre la porte de la seconde partie. En effet c’est en 2014 que je vais devenir Artiste Professionnel Origami: Mon esprit se libère des conventions et influences. Dès lors mes créations deviennent à mon image, une part de ma personnalité qui se sait imparfaite car la recherche de la perfection ne laisse pas de place à l’imagination dans la création.Mon âme d’artiste à apprit à souffrir de cette contradiction car la réussite d’un acte n’est pas liée à sa perfection.

    For me, the hardest part in creating and making a model is the choice of paper and the most suitable colors! This is a model for which I immediately found the right color combinations: red for the central and black cube for the outer structure. It is a natural consequence of another model (CUBEI), and […]
