Ingrid Siliakus

Origamic architecture designer/paper artist
Amsterdam, The Netherland


Something like 10 years ago, Ingrid Siliakus discovered Origamic Architecture by seeing work of the originator of this art form Prof. Masahiro Chatani. Ingrid was instantly fascinated by the ingenious manner in which these cards were designed and by the beauty they radiated. Ingrid studied the originator’s work for some years and than started to design herself. Through designing Ingrid got in touch with a deep-seated source of creativity that has grown over the years and still is growing. Ingrid states that creating these cards have given her personal means of expressing. The main attraction to her is that there is no limit on what can be designed. Her specialties are buildings of master architects and intricate abstract sculptures. Her source of inspiration by these abstract sculptures is works of artist like M.C. Escher.
Her work has been exhibit and is being sold in The Netherlands and beyond. Next to other artists (Marivi Garrido, Masahiro Chatani, Takaaki Kiharo and Keiko Nakazawa) Ingrid her work has been displayed in a three month long exhibition in New York (American Craft Museum) in 2001. In 2002 a book has been published from her work. This book contains complicated designs of Dutch buildings of master architects like Alessandro Mendini and Hendrick Petrus Berlage.
