The Art Of Origami: How Romanian Artist Folds The Paper Into “Talking” Cranes

Origami, or the art of paper folding, originated in Japan before spreading to countries around the world. Nowadays, origami is a popular practice not only for Asians but also for countries with Western culture. This activity does not just produce unique paper products but also helps you have a comfortable time, relax your mind and create positive habits in life.

Diary of 1,000 cranes

In 2015, Origami artist Cristian Marianciuc set an ambitious and challenging goal for himself, completing 1,000 orizuru (Japanese for “paper crane”) in 1,000 days. Surprisingly, this artist has successfully completed the goal as intended. Since this achievement, Marianciuc has continued to create even better and more perfect orizuru.

Like his previous 1,000 cranes, Marianciuc’s subsequent works revealed the artist’s ability as well as subtle techniques. He has been able to creatively utilize color onto his work, as well as having an imaginative approach to traditional origami art.

Another difference compared to the previous completion of 1,000 orizuru is that now Marianciuc does not face any pressure in terms of time and progress. He can comfortably and slowly create countless different orizuru, aesthetically pleasing according to his own personality.

The speaking Orizuru

When asked about origami, Cristian Mariancius shared: “I never stop doing the research and innovation for my products. To me, origami is very therapeutic and a way to find balance in life. It is a way to silence some voices and make others louder. It is about not doing things on autopilot, but to be involved, in the present. I also began to shorten my product completion time by pre-exploring topics or techniques that interest me. Or, if I don’t have time, I will create my own origami art products.”

Along with his sincere sharing, the Romanian artist also revealed that he will soon start a mini series inspired by Japanese folklore. Beside innovating his products, Mariancius also decides to keep the iconic symbols as well as the inherent history.

After a long period of practicing origami, Cristian Mariancius says that he personally enjoys spending time comfortably creating products in the most special way. To him, orizuru are not inanimate objects; instead, they are like a close friend who can listen to him and understand his thoughts. Orizuru have the ability to indulge Cristian Mariancius in the art of origami even more.
