The Paper Play – Superhero On Paper
To call seventeen-year-old Ning Hsieh a fan of paper craft would be a serious understatement. Combining his love for the versatility of paper and the wonder of Western comics, many of Ning Hsieh’s crafts result in life-sized pieces of superhero costumes.
In much the same way that Vincent Van Gogh was inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e and chiyogami, Ning Hsieh has found a perfect fit for these modern day icons in his own art. If you’re ever on the streets in Taiwan, especially on transit or busy downtown cores, keep an eye out for this young man dressed up to fight crime and stand for modern justice!
