Artist and architect Anna Kruhelska creates mind-bending art using geometry. Her repeating designs feature three-dimensional pyramids and circular shapes that produce undulating forms and tactile tessellations. Crafted from either folded paper or specially cut plywood, each piece highlights how math and art go hand in hand. Together, the two forces help create flowing shapes brought to life through light, shadow, and the strategic use of color.
As a trained architect, Kruhelska uses her knowledge of the field and 3D modeling software to help plan her pieces. Then, depending on the material, she will create separate shapes before arranging them in a way that conveys movement. Regardless of whether she’s folding small pieces of paper or cutting smooth sections of wood, there is a beautiful harmony present in each piece.
