“I wanna be the best in the world, at what I do and I wanna operate on that level. I only accept perfection from myself.”
Paper engineer Benja Harney is the focus of the third video from the all Originals Make Moves campaign.
Benja Harney has been making paper moves for the past seven years. As a self taught paper engineer, he has been dedicated to creating high-end pop-up books and crisp paper constructions spanning a variety of applications including fine art, advertising, magazine illustration, fashion and packaging.
The kick-ass super-hero accessories we saw at Romance Was Born’s Fashion Week show were courtesy of Benja. His named popped up again last week with the announcement of the LEGO Brickworks x Aussie Creatives Exhibition. With a love of contradiction – strength and delicacy; complexity and simplicity – Benja’s success has seen him work with the likes of Hermès, Kylie Minogue, Sydney Opera House, Romance Was Born, Mastercard, Yahoo, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.
To celebrate the release of the adistar Racer heritage trainer, the Make Moves campaign follows the lives of four influential Australian creatives and the moves they are making: DJ Beni Single, paper engineer Benja Harney, award winning chef Mitch Orr and video of typographer and graphic artist Luca Ionsecu still to come.
