Born in 1956 in Paris, France, Eric Joisel has been creating his incredible origami sculptures since 1983. Joisel’s first exhibit was at Espace Japon in Paris in 1987 and he became a professional folder in 1992. Prior to working in paper, he studied drawing and sculpting and worked in clay and stone. Joisel prefers creating human figures and is fascinated by the world of J.R. Tolkien and faeries and has produced a number of works on this theme. His portfolio also includes origami animals, musicians, barbarians, as well as a series based on Commedia dell’Arte.
