Intricately Designed Wigs Made From Nothing But Paper
Origami falls short compared to this Russian artist's method of creating paper wigs
A Russian artist took origami paper folding several levels higher when she created a series of intricately-designed wigs made from paper. Asya Kozina’s paper wigs cannot be ignored, as each piece is unique, complex and perplexing to see.
The inspiration for the paper wigs comes from Kozina’s fascination with the Baroque era, as well as the Victorian men and women. While the paper wigs are beautiful to look at, Kozina makes it clear that the wigs are purely for aesthetic purposes. She said, “This is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics, no practical sense. But they are beautiful. I made a series of wigs. Paper helps to highlight in this case the main form and not be obsessed unnecessary details.” Definitely falling under Avant Garde fashion, Kozina makes sure to take her time folding, rolling and cutting the paper to create the art pieces.
