Artist Monami Ohno is formally trained in 3-D animation, but the Japanese creative has made a name for herself as a sculptor. Instead of clay, wood, or other conventional materials, however, Ohno has opted to specialize in an unusual medium: cardboard. Specifically, Ohno uses discarded Amazon boxes to her create her collection of jaw-dropping and detailed cardboard sculptures.
Using the recycled paper products, Ohno crafts an eclectic array of cardboard art. Some of her most impressive sculptural works of art are high-spirited creatures and monsters (including a miniature Godzilla), realistic representations of food and drink, functioning shoes, and elaborate vehicles.
Each piece is composed of multiple parts intricately pieced together, allowing Ohno to impressively achieve various textures, patterns, and features. Given the level of detail apparent in each piece of upcycled art, the simplicity of Ohno's tools may surprise you. To make her striking sculptures , she uses only a pair of scissors, a standard box cutter, a ruler, glue, and masking tape.
