Origami Street Art by Mademoiselle Maurice
French artist Mademoiselle Maurice (28) uses origami, lace, painting and embroidery to create artworks which may look naive at first sight, but actually they are deep, sensitive and connected with the events encountered during her daily life.
“These urban installations created with hundreds of foldings origami, grow up in the town with an important visibility thanks to their big size and their bright colors. This series was inspired to me after my year in Japan and after the events of the 2011 march 11, which induced the explosion of the nuclear plant of Fukushima when I was there. After this events and some readings, I decided to participate to the tribute for Sadako Sasaki, added to this my consideration for the Japanese people and all the victims of nuclear disasters.”
