Benja Harney Enters the (Paper) Fold…

Hermes Event May 2009 North Sydney

The Sydney Morning Herald published a wonderful article about the very talented Benja Harney this morning. Benja is a Sydney-based paper artist. Although he originally trained in graphic design, he now creates amazing works out of paper. The magic he creates with little more than a scalpel and some paper is just fantastic!

The accordion was part of a solo exhibition at Object Gallery

Enjoy this beautiful Sydney day!

Hey Benja! Thanks for saying howdy. Looking forward to seeing more of your work, now…

Wow, these are fantastic, very talented indeed.

Incredible! I just love this artwork – so inspiring and truly original!

Totally inspired by these people I seem to keep finding recently who create new careers out of their hobbies/passions.

Yes! It’s all out there – people are just going for it – it is totally inspiring indeed and takes courage but wow – there are some cool people out there doing amazing things…I totally hear you! 😉 Isn’t it lovely?

Here is an interview with Benja that was re posted on my old design college site blog a few weeks ago, well worth watching with a cuppa (or glass of wine)!!! He is amazing ( hopefully the link works)


The link works AND it’s a great vid’. How cool! Thanks so much. 🙂

I’m even more determined to go to the exhibition now!
