The Hanoitimes - A handicraft 3D lightbox including layers of paper-cut may take four to five hours to be completed.
Nguyen Duy Linh, a young artist and designer, has realized his brilliant idea of combining kirigami, a form of paper art from Japan with the colorful LED lights to create enchanted 3D lightboxes of Hanoi’s Old Quarters, VnExpress reported.
Linh who spent years ago studying in Japan said that the tender passion to Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, inspired him to create the 3D artworks titled “Goc nhin Ha Noi” (The view of Hanoi) and desire to introduce its cultural stories.

According to the artist, a handicraft 3D lightbox including layers of paper-cut may take four to five hours to be completed and the artworks will have better depth of field and be more interactive with the shimmed lights.
“A designer never limits his artworks within the boundary of traditional methods but level it up with more vibrant effects such as lights, colors, music boxes or movement”, Linh said.
He said that the hardest thing when creating the artworks is the emotional communication capacity between the artists and the viewers as the lightboxes are not only applied arts but also conveys stories of idyllic life or cultural beauties.
Japanese Kirigami or Origami has become familiar to art enthusiasts in Vietnam thanks to its unique value created by skillful hands of the artists.
