Matt Shlian: The Unconventional Artist and Paper Engineer

Artist and designer Matt Shlian describes himself as a paper engineer. His work is somewhat atypical, a hybrid between art and science, where paper folding meets nanotechnology. Shlian, who began his journey by studying ceramics, found that he was interested in a variety of artistic endeavours including glass, painting, performance and sound. Although he earned a joint major in ceramics and print media, far from making traditional ceramics or print works, Shlian would instead create large digital prints and folded pop-up spreads.
