Baku Maeda is the imaginative artist behind Ribbonesia. It all started when he took note of the the gross under-appreciation of the beauty and simplicity of ribbons and decided to do something about it. Combining artistry and his love of animals, Maeda created an entire menagerie out of folded ribbons. Pretty soon, his work expanded into nature-themed masks, headdresses, and designs. Maeda is currently based in Sapporo, Japan.
