Bird Sculptures by Bijian Fan

Published May 1, 2014

Chinese artist Bijian Fan creates gorgeous bird sculptures out of paper or polymer.

“As a child, Fan learned origami, or the art of paper folding, from his grandmother. He earned his BS and MS degrees in Mathematics as well as a Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering but somehow found his way back towards art later in life. When he emigrated to the United States from China, art became a way for him to express himself. As he stated, ‘I gravitated towards visual art because of my struggle with language, culture, and my minority status as an immigrant. Visual art transcends culture barriers and allows me to express freely. Through art, I regained my voice.'”
