Shin Tanaka

The Japanese graffiti-artist and designer Shin Tanaka is now on display at Östasiatiska museet in Stockholm. He is known to use the old traditional techniques of origami and mix it with modern street influences. The result is great! He makes small creatures, paper toys and sneakers. He first started to create the papersneakers as a student and didnt have the money to buy the sneakers he wanted. Unfortunately I dont have any photos of the papersneakers but check out his great page http://shin.co.nr/ it is truely inspiring!
