With a humble sheet of paper, artist Benja Harney crafts intricate designs and sculpture. Over the last ten years as a professional creative, artist, and educator, Harney has led his Sydney-based studio, Paperform, to develop a body of work that pushes the possibilities of the paper medium.
The Australian Design Centre believes Harney is a pioneer in this field, and internationally renowned brands agree. Working with clients such as Hermes, Adidas, Romance Was Born, and Telstra, he fashions paper into pop-up books, sculpture, installation, packaging, fine art, animation and set design, making anything and everything possible with this everyday material.
