Japanese street artist Shin Tanaka is best known for his elaborate paper creations. With his use of curves, bright colours and careful attention to detail, Tanaka is successful in fusing origami and urban culture in his work. Some of his most notable pieces are his paper sneakers. While he only started to make replicas of popular sneaker designs to comfort the fact that he could not afford the real deal on a student's budget, Tanaka's idea exploded into a very unique, worldwide open source project.
Shin has instigated thousands of collaborations worldwide. He is known worldwide as being an innovator of papercraft and creator of the most widely recognized graffiti and urban paper toys on the market.
Shin says about his design: "War mixes everything, to compare war to colour, it is black. To restore to a state of peace means factorizing the black to three primary colours. And white reduces the influence of darks".
