New York based artist Felix Semper’s stretchable paper sculptures at first glance appears to be a stone bust, when in fact this sculpture of Notorious B.I.G. is entirely comprised of hundreds of layers of paper that have been glued together and meticulously carved. Felix’s stretchable paper sculptures are inspired by traditional marble stone busts. Through this fluid movement each sculpture has an added playful mobility as opposed to the traditional aesthetic. He has transformed the medium to stretch, twist, elongate and retract.

Semper’s flexible form recalls the work of Chinese artist Li Hongbo, whose stretchable paper busts have taken on a range of classical and contemporary themes.
