Eine bunte Vogelschar – 1.000 Origami-Kraniche von Cristian Marianciuc

Ein Mann, ein Wort! Cristian Marianciuc nimmt seine Challenges immer ganz ernst. Ich würde sagen, vogelernst: Der Mann verpflichtete sich einst, 365 Tage lang einen kunstvollen Origami-Kranich zu basteln. Und natürlich hielt er sein Wort, wie denn sonst. Doch das Jahr war schon lange um, aber der Origami-Enthusiast machte einfach weiter. Jeden Tag entflog seiner Werkstatt ein außergewöhnliches Vogelexemplar.

Inzwischen zählt sein Vogelschwarm unglaubliche 1.000 gefiederte Geschöpfe, eins hübscher als das andere. Blumenvögel und Pagodavögel, Mikadovögel und Vögel aus Filz. Ich frage mich gerade, was Cristian mit seinem Vogelparadies weiter so anstellt? Verkaufen oder ein eigenes Museum errichten? Wir hören bestimmt noch von ihm!

“be still, my heart” crane Song of the day: Cowards by Taur @taurofficial Surprise! Getting some flashbacks from the days of “one crane a day” today. I have no idea how I managed to keep at it for 1000 days! But here we are. I bring to you a crane that, for me, evokes strength and serenity at the same time. It could very easily be part of my Mythology mini-series, or the Guardian Angels one. Although usually metallics are perceived as cold and distant, this silver and black crane gives me a sense of safety and of being watched over. It could also be that I am feeling cozy because I finally tidied up my room, haha, but the longer I look at this paper bird, the more I feel at ease. This week will be a very hectic one for me, the deadline for the project I am working on is looming like a thunderstorm, but I am sure I will manage to have everything ready on time. Have a wonderful Sunday, and see you in my stories! x #origami #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #papercut #paperart #wings #wing #silver #metallic #feathers #delicate #papercutting #fineart #contemporaryart #artlovers #artoftheday #angel #tsuru #archangel #seraphim #mythology #handcraft #papercraft #crafty #artistoninstagram #art #artgift #artgifts #fantasyart #spirituality

“In silva” crane Song of the day: One of those nights by KEY @bumkeyk & Crush @crush9244 I took this evening off to rest my hands and my head. It’s been a few crazy weeks of constant work. But crazy in the best way possible! I cannot wait to share with you what I have been working on, soon. Also, I have another piece of incredibly exciting news as well. All in good time. Until then, I hope that my stories are keeping everyone entertained and amused and informed, hehe! Now – today’s crane is a mix of mystery and darkness. I kept thinking of an ancient forest while I was working on it. A forest with carpets of moss and twisted trees with bark that can tell a million stories. I hope everyone is having a lovely end to the week! #origami #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #papercut #paperart #wings #wing #antlers #gold #golden #feathers #miniature #deer #blue #forest

“Icarus before the fall” crane Song of the day: Sparrow by Favela @musicfavela I’ve been working (and still am) on this new mini-series for weeks. I finally summoned the courage to explore some techniques I’ve wanted to try out for the longest time, and I am hoping that everything works out. The concept behind all the elements in this collection is the essence of what drives me and what inspires me. It’s as if I concentrated all my work up to today into a handful of pieces. The main sources of inspiration have been mythology, music and ornithology – or the study of birds. I don’t want to explain in too much detail the symbolism behind today’s bird and behind what I prepared for the weeks to come, I’ll leave it up to you to discover. I would love to hear your thoughts on it too! For “Icarus before the fall” I exclusively used ‘Shiramine’ paper from Awagami @awagami_factory. It is such a luxurious paper that it elevated my creative process to new heights. It has definitely given me a renewed appreciation for my favourite medium! Keep an eye out for the next posts. I really hope you’ll love what I am preparing! x #origami #awagami #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #paperart #wings #blackandwhite #fineart #papercutting #icarus #mythology #paper #miniature #angel #papercraft #paperlove #handcraft #etsyfinds #etsyshop #etsylove #papercrafts #craft #craftsman #crafty #finearts #artistsoninstagram #artofthday #artlovers #artistsofinstagram

“flowers and bread” crane Song of the day: Utopia by Vancouver Sleep Clinic @vancouversleepclinic I slept in this morning and it was really nice. I had some breakfast and then I went flower-picking in the little forest not far from my place. I found some wood anemones, or as we call them in Romania: “Easter flowers” and also some cherry blossoms. And this is how today’s crane was born. I had to work quickly because the flowers were wilting quite rapidly. Now, I just finished baking up a storm, haha. I made chili cheese cornbread and some focaccia. It’s that kind of a Monday I suppose. I hope everyone is having a peaceful start to the week. #icarusmidair #cristianmarianciuc #origami #floral #flowers #cherryblossom #sakura #hanami #blossom #petals #delicate

“For the love of life” crane Song of the day: Flight by Son Lux @son_lux Last week, I received one of @pheromone_christophermarley Christopher Marley’s books – Biophilia. I’ve been flipping through it pretty much daily and every single time I cannot help but be amazed at his sensibility and his profound love for all creatures, great and small. I am particularly drawn, as maybe expected, to the reclaimed birds that Christopher “brings back to life”. And being a country boy at heart myself, I respond in an intense way to his work. I grew up among chickens and ducks and turkeys and geese, lots of cows and pigs, the occasional sheep, and I have a feeling that this book, and Christopher’s work in general, resonate with the child within me. So, I replicated the wings of 3 colourful birds: the Pale-Headed Rosella, the Green-Winged Macaw and the Blue Gold Macaw. It feels wonderful to be surrounded by so many wings as I sit here, at my desk. I am thankful for the ability to “fly” with both, my mind and my heart. x #origami #paperart #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #papercutting #paper #wings #wing #biophilia #macaw #parrot #feather #feathers #watercolor

“Neo-Sakura 3” crane Song of the day: Better by Air Hockey @airhockeychamps Here is the 3rd and last (for now) crane in the neo-sakura collection. I used the same paper for the cherry blossoms, except I painted these ones with a gold ink from @winsorandnewton. I have officially added these flowers to the list of paper obsessions that make me happy, haha. I realized, after a couple of people brought it up, that I unconsciously paired up two elements that are symbolically opposites: the crane, a symbol of longevity and the cherry blossom – a symbol of fragility and transience. I keep getting the surreal sensation that this project is slowly developing a life of its own, not necessarily separate from my imagination and being. It’s as if it sneaks layers of meaning to my cranes, ones that I did not actively think about myself. I will have to slightly alter the description of what I do, and, to the cryptic symbolism that only I can decipher and the symbolism others are able to translate, I will need to add symbolism that even I have yet to discover. I find this fascinating! I have now gained the role of observer of my own work, not just that of creator. I got a bit too philosophical there, my apologies 😌 Time for a few episodes of The Office now! #origami #paperart #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #delicate #papercutting #paperflowers #sakura #cherryblossom #paper #miniature #hanami #花見 #桜の花 #gold #golden #neosakura

“fashion 2” crane Song of the day: what are you so afraid of by XXXTENTACION @xxxtentacion Today’s crane takes inspiration from the Spring 2019 @dolcegabbana collection. I used their classic palette of black, white, red and gold, while adding my signature wings and floral paper cuts. I used my beloved ‘shirakaba’ washi paper for the white details, and a metallic gold paper for the large wings. For the other gold details, I used a @winsorandnewton gold ink. I love how it give this crane a refined opulence, despite its size. One more ‘fashion’ crane coming this weekend, and there may be another monochromatic mini-collection on its way, we will see. Also, I think I will make fashion a recurring theme in my work, I had a great time coming up with these new designs. I hope everyone is having a lovely end of the week! #origami #paperart #cristianmarianciuc #icarusmidair #wings #feathers #fashion #gold #metallic #dolcegabbana #dolceandgabbana #DGRinascente #dgfamily @stefanogabbana

“Azrael” crane Song of the day: Be still, my tongue (slow meadow rework) by Snorri Hallgrímsson @snorri_hallgrimsson @slowmeadow Here is the first crane, of hopefully many, that I’ve created as a tribute to an artist I really look up to – this time it is Peter Mohrbacher @petemohrbacher. His ‘Angelarium” series is breathtaking. Just beautiful. So, I took inspiration from his piece ‘Azrael’ and I came up with this crane. I loved working on it, each feather of each wing was a thrill to bring to life. And I am very happy with the final result. By now you must know about my obsession with wings and feathers and angels, so this was a real joy to work on. I’m happy I brought out my watercolours again. It has been a long while since I used them. I had forgotten how much I love painting, hehe. It is raining here today, and all the snow has turned into mud. There is mud everywhere. Today will be a day of herbal teas and films in my room, haha. What are some artists you really look up to and love? Artists whose work speaks to you on a profound level? I would love to know. Until the next crane, have a wonderful weekend! #origami #paperart #angelarium #azrael #angel #wings #feathers #petermohrbacher #watercolor #watercolour #scary #dark #icarusmidair #cristianmarianciuc

“Yōkai” crane 2 Song of the day: Sweet unrest by Apparat #WHPLayers Today’s song of the day comes from an album that terrifies me. But not in a “horror” kind of way. It will for ever remind me of a very bittersweet time in my life. Does beauty ever terrify you? Does it ever give you goosebumps and causes you to not know how to react? Does it ever make you want to smile and cry and want to run as fast as you can, all at the same time? It does to me. And it is painful as much as it is beautiful. Today’s yōkai embodies this sentiment. It evokes the essence of fear mixed with beauty that makes you physically weak. It keeps watch at the intersection of extreme feelings. I find it funny how all my monsters are made of paper, yet, despite their fragility, they don’t seem any less scary. But I digress. My monsters are for me to fight or make peace with. I just wish I could share with you the both sinking and uplifting feeling that took over me today. x #origami #icarusmidair #cristianmarianciuc #yokai #monster #kimono #wings #washi #miniature #妖怪 #japanese #apparat #fear

“Apollo” crane Song of the day: Featherlight by Favela @musicfavela Apollo is wrapping up this mini-series of mythology inspired paper birds. It’s been such an amazing experience – more profound than any previous mini-series. I’ve enjoyed a wonderful wave of inspiration and I’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible reactions from you all. As I mentioned already, I’ll be adding these birds to my Etsy shop this week, but I will let you know in my stories exactly when. I’ll keep it short and sweet this time. I think I’ll go out for a walk in the snow and hopefully a new wave of inspiration will hit me while I’m out and about. x #origami #icarusmidair #mythology #apollo #white #blackandwhite #wings #wings #paperart #papercut #craft #diy #paper #feathers #feather #delicate #miniature

“mid-air” crane Song of the day: Them is us by Rival Consoles @rivalconsoles Last night I went to sleep listening to the most restless winds I’ve experienced in a long time. It’s still grey and windy today, but I’ll grab the coat I bequeathed from grandpa and go out for a walk. I have a piece of paper with some ideas jotted on it for a handful of intricate cranes that I hope to sink my teeth in for the remainder of the week. They will then be available for purchase in my Etsy shop (link in my profile). Today’s crane kept me company pretty much all day yesterday. I attached the last minuscule feathers right before jumping in bed. I hope to have infused some of the wild weather in its wings. I shall be off now: dear late October, send some more inspiration my way, won’t you? #origami #icarusmidair #paperart #feathers #papercutting #wings #blue #bird #crane #delicate #intricate
