Papercraft Artist Harukiru Who Turns Food Packaging Into Art Has Solo Exhibition 2019-10-02 Wed 2019-10-02 Wed The World of Harukiru Many of our readers may recall Harukiru (@02ESyRaez4VhR2l), a popular Japanese papercraft artist with over 370,000 followers on Twitter. Harukiru's astonishing creations fashioned entirely out of food cartons and packaging are so detailed and clever in their design that we have had reason to share them on grape Japan more than once. For example, his Pringles mascot figure which turned into an entire "boy band" based off different flavor packages, his knight fashioned out of a box of Chivas Regal, or his superhero made out of a box of Garigarikun popsicles are some of his creations which come to mind. "A Dreamworld Made out of Snack Boxes - An Exhibition" Fortunately for those who are visiting Tokyo in late October to early November, you'll have a chance to see Harukiru's astonishing creations up close and in person at a solo exhibition entitled "A Dreamworld Made out of Snack Boxes - An Exhibition" (「お菓子の箱でつくる夢の世界展」）at the Ikebukuro PARCO department store. © PR Times, Inc.
