Sipho Mabona "The Plague" for Folding Paper Exhibition

Sipho Mabona is a prolific origami artist who has been deeply rooted in the sphere of paper art

Sipho Mabona is a prolific origami artist who has been deeply rooted in the sphere of paper art since he was only five years old. His trademark design and abstract geometrical shapes have gone on to represent brands like Red Bull and ASICS as well as having seen placement in exhibitions all around the world. His latest exhibition “The Plague” is both a metaphorical and social message that speaks to the allure and hypnotic ambivalence of money. Each piece in the exhibition was created from an uncut sheet of U.S. currency, taking Mabona up to five hours to complete. “The Plague” is part of the master exhibition “FOLDING PAPER: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami,” on display in the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles starting on March 10 where it will run through August 26, 2012.
