Taiwanese sculptor uses recycled cardboard to create works of art, such as animals or monsters. Nicknamed the “Tony Stark of Cardboard” in reference to his impressive achievement in 2014 of a cardboard Iron Man, Kai-Xiang Zhong (a.k.a. ZhongGe) decided to give a second life to the ordinary cardboard boxes. The idea came to him while he was still a student in college.
Among Zhong’s primary interests are animals, monsters, robots and dinosaurs. Having designed them for a long time, he changed his career and turned wholly to cardboard sculptures. While respecting the appearance of his creatures, the 24-year-old artist also wants to convey an emotion, bringing many details to the development of his works.
After creating lots of animals, the artist has also started a collection of insects and switched lately even to human figures such as Pennywise , the scary clown from “It”.
