Jack Mosher is an American artist, born in Florida and raised in Michigan, who took an interest in art and Japan in general at a young age. His father taught Karate and Judo in a university and one of his dad’s friends gave him an art book by Frank Frazzeta, which he says was his primary inspiration.
“Wataru, who lives in Tokyo but is originally from Saitama, Japan, started working on the castle while he was studying to become an art student.
After failing a university entrance exam three times he focused on this project, which became so large he had to sleep under a table in his tiny flat.
The city’s centre piece is a castle which is loosely based upon El Temple de la Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona, Spain.”
Though, I think this is not true Origami, as he has cut and pasted his pieces.
