Artist Eric Joisel began his career as a formally trained sculptor working outside Paris. In his 20s, he decided to start anew with mere sheets of paper. Soon he began a life-long quest to become a master of origami, and over the next three decades he crafted African masks, barbarians, musicians, and animals out of this material. Joisel passed away at the age of 53 in 2010, but fortunately his life was celebrated in the documentary "Between the Folds". This website from PBS Arts offers a sampling of his remarkable constructions and several clips from the film. Visitors might do well to start by watching the clips "Paper as a Medium" and "Finding Inspiration in Books". There are also ten samples of his work here, each one accompanied by an explanation.
