Los Angeles native Jeff Nishinaka is the world’s premier paper sculptor with a prolific career. His portfolio spans a wide range including Bloomingdale’s, Sprint, Visa, Penn State University, Paramount Pictures and Coca Cola. Over the years he has found various techniques in how to manipulate and bend paper to make these magnificent masterpieces.

Nishinaka began working in paper quite by accident.

I have always wanted to be a painter, but while studying illustration at Art Center, I was given assignments in both a graphic design and fashion drawing class at the same time to experiment in different mediums, one of them being paper.

I just try to redirect that energy into something that feels animated and alive…
