Simon Schubert is a German artist who uses paper as his medium. He achieved his amazing pictures without using any tools other than hands for paper folding.

According to The Telegraph, Schubert spent 2 years in perfecting his unique technique of creating artworks by just folding a single sheet of paper. Now, it only takes for him up to a week or a month to create his amazing masterpieces.

“The first attempt was not really so successful, took quite a while to get the technique perfect,” said Schubert.

With his amazing work, Schubert said that he often had to convince people that his pictures are not painted.

“Most of the people who see the work are surprised that the pictures are created by folding paper, they don’t believe it when I tell them. Many of them think I’ve used paint or pencil to create the affect of light and shade. But when they realise the pictures are actually folded they are quite impressed,” he added.

His artworks were being displayed at Upstairs Gallery in Berlin. Here are some photos of Simon Schubert‘s folded paper masterpieces which sell for up to £3,800 each.
