Intricate Olympic figures crafted from paper using serial plane technique

Paper Crafted Olympic player poses

Paper Artist Raya Sader Bujana from Barcelona has collaborated with photographer Leo García Méndez to create a collection of stock photography themed on Olympic players customary play poses. Giving a very different touch to how Olympics as a sport leaves a lasting impression on our subconscious, the artist has created 150 paper crafts which include popular poses of athletes in different disciplines. The serial plane technique makes use of 3mm paper pieces glued together to create a 3D effect which requires a lot of patience and craft.

This unique art form gives a very distinct texture and depth to the sculpture created. So without wasting more time on words, let’s enjoy this visually intricate artwork by Raya in some more pictures from her Instagram page.

▪Hey guys ?we've been working for the last couple of weeks on proper studio photos of these pieces and finally I can show you some ? we did 2 different shoots, one is white on white like this one and the other with bright colored backgrounds. The original concept for these pieces was for them to be super minimalistic and white on white, so that the effect would be as sculptural as possible and I really love how they look! The colored ones (I'll post some soon so you can see) are super fun and I've always been a fan of brights… But I'd love to hear your thoughts on these ? what do you guys think? ❤ "The High Jump" ▪▪ Hola chicos ? llevamos dos semanas trabajando en las fotos de estudio de estas piezas y por fin les puedo enseñar ? hicimos 2 sesiones diferentes, una es blanco sobre blanco como esta y la otra con fondos de colores vivos. El concepto original para estas piezas era fotografiar en blanco sobre blanco para que el resultado final fuese súper minimalista y lo más escultural posible y la verdad es que a mi me encanta como se ve! Y las de fondos de colores (ya pondré fotos) son súper divertidas y siempre me han encantado los colores vivos… Pero me encantaría que me dieran su opinión al respecto ? ¿Qué les parece? ❤"Salto de Altura" ▪ Photo @leocroma #paperart #papersculpture #rio2016

▪Paper cyclist ? This dude is proving to be quite a challenge ? and my poor fingers are super swollen, I still have to finish up the arms and he'll be ready… I remember my mom always telling me that I should stop being such a perfectionist and that I focus way too much on details that no-one notices but me, the thing is… I'm now starting to believe that details are my superpower hehe ? ▪▪ Ciclista de papel ? Este chico esta siendo un reto ? y mis pobres dedos están ya hinchados de cortar, aún tengo que terminarle los brazos y ya estará listo… Me acuerdo que mi mamá siempre me decía que soy demasiado perfeccionista y que me enfoco demasiado en detalles que solo yo puedo ver… La cosa es… Que empiezo a pensar que los detalles son mi superpoder jeje ?▪ Photo @leocroma #paperart #papersculpture
