Paul Frasco is an origami designer focused on expressive animal and fantasy designs boasting fun and accessible folding sequences. Paul's design aesthetic is influenced by modern origami greats like Robert Lang and the late Eric Joisel. The scale of Paul's work ranges from diminutive pieces folded from a single sheet of standard origami paper to oversized pieces—including one folded from a single 18' x 18' sheet of paper for installation at Stony Brook University's Wang Center for Asian Studies.
