This week on EXPOSURE, we would like to introduce a contemporary paper master, Li Hongbo! Inspired by Chinese paper lanterns, he uses stacks of paper to recreate Renaissance sculptures.

The sculptures are composed of over 20,000 sheets of paper glued together.
This video explains his sculpting process:
