toilet paper roll faces by junior fritz jacquet (7)

French artist Junior Fritz Jacquet has been fascinated by paper since a young age. Inspired by the traditional art of origami, Jacquet explores and experiments with folding and crumpling techniques, developing an innovative style all his own.

In a series entitled Masks, Jacquet squishes and crumples 40 different toilet paper rolls into unique and expressive faces which are then coated with shellac and various pigments. In addition to the masks below, you can find more on his website and Facebook page.

On her fantasy creature sculptures, Ellen remarks:
