Artist Creates Origami Street Art Based Off of Classic Film Totoro (Video)

Born in Poland, but later a transplant into London 13 years ago to pursue his passion of art and music, Airborne Mark is a graffiti artist by day, a rapper by night. His street art is truly unique because he incorporates origami as the underlying theme in both his art and his music. As you can see from the video, he starts with a folded origami piece, in this instance from the classic Hayao Miyazaki film, My Neighbor Totoro, and then begins the process of redefining that piece on his new canvas... the streets of London. I love that he is able to reimagine the original origami piece, while also still incorporating all of the shading and tonality of the folds and creases as he paints.
