Giang Dinh uses the wet folding origami technique to make faces, animals, figures, and even miniatures.

Love these! The cat figures are very evocative—look at this little guy's prideful pose.

I'm particularly fond of the gorilla.

They're wonderful, but yeah, the gorilla was what made me say "Wow!!" out loud.

My favorite was the "Owl" that looks like a vagina.

I've never heard of wet folding, but these are lovely, and make me want to try them. Also, needs the "there is a cat" tag. ; )

These are so amazing! Although initially I thought 'dreaming dog' was just 'ball of deli paper'.

I love the penguins. And the foxes. Ooh, the polar bear is awesome! And the gorilla! The cats are brilliant, and the owls made me laugh.

Okay, they're all genius. Wow.

These are great. Much more organic feel than the origami I'm used to seeing and doing.

he does amazing work with paper. I've had the great pleasure to meet him several times, and on one of those occasions he was doing a presentation about his design process. It was so fluid and peaceful- utterly different than anyone else I've seen.

He's one of my favorite origami artists, for good reason :)
