Amazing Paper Art Insect Sculptures By Tina Kraus

"Some of these animals are also very rare, but decorative, so I'm happy to offer cruelty-free options for people to enjoy these animals in their homes".

Talking about the world of creation is indeed diverse. Different innovations must be created to make a work look stunning to the audience. A work of art can be made from various materials, from clay, wood, to paper. With high creativity, these raw materials can be transformed into a valuable work of art. Its artworks of art also vary, ranging from sculptures, decorative trinkets, to replicas of living things. Sculptures can be done using paper. Making crafts from paper in the form of origami may be common. But can you make from a piece of paper become realistic sculptures? Of course, not everyone can.

As done by an artist, paper engineer, and illustrator Tina Kraus . This German artist makes art replicas made of paper. Artwork made from paper raw materials includes pop-ups, paper toys, and animal replicas. Of the many works of Tina, animal replicas are quite attention-grabbing works. Tina Kraus' paper animal replicas are mostly insects. The paper replica looks very real like a real insect. The shape of the insect replica from head to toe is made in great detail with great care.

Making insect sculptures are very difficult, given the many details of an insect's body to be made. But things like that are not an obstacle for Tina. Starting from the head to the feet are made in great detail. Making people who see it will not think if it is just a replica. Replica of animals, especially insects, is one of the most viral and attracts attention. Because the insects she made look so real, just like the real thing.

She started about three years ago by making paper sculptures from crêpe paper. Initially, she made plants, then various insects and a gecko. Tina then tried to make plants were not too ordinary, such as the Venus flytrap. She continued by making insects, even though the insects she made were not far from the theme of plants because they often disguised themselves as flowers or stems.

After that, she tried to challenge herself to build a gecko, and was quite pleased with the result. So that she continued to explore and reproduce her insect replica artworks. Even when she puts her artworks in framing, the replicas look like a preserved animal. She continues to look for ideas for the artworks she will make later.

As written on the Bored Panda , that in 2017, Tina started making crêpe paper flowers and plants. Soon after, she began experimenting with the medium to see what else could be made with it and made her first insects - the praying mantis orchid and the stick bug. Since then, she's been refining her technique to add more detail and bring it to life.

"I'm trying to recreate the beauty and weirdness of nature on paper. I want to show people that species that are often neglected and threatened due to human impacts on Earth also have extraordinary beauty and value. Some of these animals are also very rare, but decorative, so I'm happy to offer cruelty-free options for people to enjoy these animals in their homes but not in real life".

The one who only glanced at her didn't even know which sculptures of Tina had made from paper or indeed real insects. Intrigued by Tina's artworks? Check them out below!
