Bio

Juho Könkkölä is a 23-year-old Finnish origami artist, who brings ideas into reality by folding paper. With over 15 years of experience in folding origami models, his focus is on creating expressive human characters. The characters get their inspiration from history, folk tales, mythologies, books, movies, video games, and real-life observations. Every artwork is folded from a single square sheet of paper, without any cutting. The creation process of one character can take several months of work. He is very enthusiastic to learn new skills and refine his art techniques to accomplish even the wildest ideas.
