Origami has been for many years one of my favorite subjects and recently I received a wonderful gift, a book about kimono prints and propaganda. I decided to use those two sources as my inspiration for ORIMONO print project. I’m also fascinated by the Japanese culture duality about tradition and modernism. You can see people in the streets wearing classical kimono surrounded by the most advanced electronics and the latest fashion trend bright colored pieces. They know how to blend these two characteristics gracefully. The palette for this project comes from simple origami paper which is normally printed in primary colors and kimono prints which have the most beautiful delicate yet lavish gradations and color combinations.
