“Thousand origami cranes in a thousand days” was the super ambitious goal for Paper artist Cristian Marianciuc from Romania, which he set out in the year 2015 and he has never looked back since then.
Since achieving this goal, Marianciuc continued crafting the cranes, culminating in an increasing collection of equally elaborate and progressively experimental paper sculptures.
Marianciuc’s cranes showcase his eye for detail, creative use of color, and imaginative approach to traditional origami. Without having the pressure of filling a quota or meeting deadlines, though he can play around with his artistic approach, setting each piece aesthetically apart.
While Marianciuc has divulged that he’ll soon begin a mini-series inspired by Japanese folklore, he has also assured that he has no plans of quitting his crane practice.
