He was one of the artists who got shocked by the earthquake in 2011 and what it did to Japan. Seeing people leave paper cranes, as a tribute to a school that went down in the earthquake, Onogawa got inspired to create this amazing art.
Paper cranes are a classic form of origami art and seeing this wanted him to use this basic origami art to be in a complex piece of art. He then started to create these wonderful sculptures that he makes now with a collection of hundreds of small paper cranes.
He creates paper cranes in the size of a fingernail or even smaller. This requires a lot of patience and a very disciplined mind to go through the process. He creates structures, such as trees or flocks of paper cranes. Whatever the structure is he always uses hundreds of paper cranes to honor the moment that he got inspired to craft them.
