Anna Kruhelska

Paper sculptor

Polish visual artist Anna Kruhelska creates abstract three-dimensional artworks made from folded paper. Her background, however, is in architecture and in her 15-year career as an architect she designed high-end residential buildings, five-star hotels and luxury apartments in Russia, Malaysia and the UK. Although she enjoyed it, her professional work did not leave much room for artistic expression. Therefore, in 2018, she began experimenting with pleating fabrics later turning to paper, which proved to be the best material for her work.


All the pieces in Anna's work are folded, glued and assembled by hand with meticulous attention to detail. The process is very repetitive as each relief consists of 40–1,000 individual pieces, but the artist finds it very calming and relaxing, almost like a meditation. The end result is fitted into a wooden frame with a glass front, eliminating light reflections and creating a unique effect dependent on the viewer’s perspective.
