Eric writes, “Origami artist Joel Cooper has created some utterly amazing work, which includes these realistic looking sculptural masks of human faces. And they really do look real. This guy is a genre all unto himself, and is really worth checking out. Nobody out there is doing anything like this, and he’s starting to receive a lot of attention in the origami world for his work. He came from nowhere with this body of artwork that redefines the limits of what can be done with a single sheet of paper.” Link.

    While Joel’s use of tesselation to create his faces is unique and astonishingly impressive, there are several other origami artists that produce just as impressive human faces, including:

    Eric Joisel: http://www.artorigami.com/fr/gejoisel.htm The site is in French, scroll down to see some his latest master pieces

    Joseph Wu’s Origami page: http://www.origami.vancouver.bc.ca/home.html
    In the gallery there are examples of several artist’s work including Eric Joisel and Giang Dinh.

    There are may others creating this sort of origami and all of it is very impressive as well but I don’t have the links to their home pages handy (I’ll post another comment when I find them).
