Street artist Mademoiselle Maurice has called a swarm of origami birds to her latest large-scale mural! The mural, titled “Lunar Cycles”, is the largest urban mural ever created in Paris, and spans the width of a large building scheduled for demolition. The mural was first created by painting over the entire 460-foot-long side of the building in black paint, which was then decorated with 15,000 colorful origami birds, spread and layered to create a beautiful array of designs and colors. The mural was created in collaboration with Mathgoth Gallery, and the final design was decided upon with input from the local community. The mural will remain open to the public until August 2016, so check out this cool installation while it lasts!

Origami, the art of paper folding, has been popular with artists for decades, and allows creators to fold and form simple and incredibly complex shapes. In order to celebrate this art form, the Cooper Union will be hosting a brand-new origami exhibit this summer, titled “Surface of Structure: Folded Forms”! The exhibit will be hosting over 80 artists from five continents across the world, such as Robert Harbin, Tran Trung Hieu, Akira Yoshizawa, Evan Zodl, and more, and will include up-and-coming artists in the medium as well as seasoned masters.


The collection will feature a wide variety of origami shapes, ranging from classic origami animals to intricate, abstract art based on the paper folding technique. The show will be open at 41 Cooper Square in New York City from June 19th to July 4th, which is where the first origami exhibit, “Plane Geometry and Fancy Figures”, was hosted in 1959, making this exhibit a must-see if you’re in the area!
