A series of serial plane paper sculptures of Olympic athletes by Barcelona-based paper artist Raya Sader Bujana. The project was commissioned by stock image photographer Abel Mitjá with the idea of creating a series of paper pieces expressing movement by adding texture, light, and volume to reinforce the fluidity of the pieces.
The process was a challenge that required a huge team effort to get just the right positioning. Of course, each section needed to be the exact shape to attain the look of the soft curves. Then came the cutting... I hand cut all of the pieces and used tiny 3mm separators to assemble them. It was a huge job as some of the figures have around 150 tiny pieces and up to 500 separators. The project required many, many hours of work, but the end result was very satisfying.See more of Raya Sader Bujana's work on Behance or at her website.
