Gallery: Craig Folds Five Manipulates Money into Amazing Origami Art

The artist cleverly uses the money's illustrations, numbers and drawings to give the art piece an extra decoration.

Craig Folds Five’s intricate art is made from US dollars, and each figure is created from a folded uncut note using no glue or any tools apart from the artist’s hands. The money’s illustrations, numbers and drawings are cleverly used to give the artpiece those extra little details that make it special.

From a fisherman on a boat to flowers to animals, lots of previously unseen origami figures are part of Craig Folds Five’s fantastic collection. Craig Folds Five also triggers an awkward feeling in our troubled economy, forcing us to consider our own relationship with money.

    Lovely work. The fish figure could be used as an example to raise awareness for the issue of over-fishing. When the fish are all gone, are we going to eat dollars?
