Pretty Origami Typography Spotted in San Francisco Street

Art group TheUpsideUp somehow managed to combine three of our favorite subjects into one beautiful new installation – street art, origami and typography. First spotted this past Tuesday morning in San Francisco, on Asian Art Museum’s exterior wall, the pretty 3-D art installation was thought to be the work of Parisian origami artist Mademoiselle Maurice (who you may remember from this post). TheUpsideUp, which describes itself as making “mindful” street art, quickly claimed its work over Twitter. What’s most stunning is that the word “fly” is in the white space of hundreds of origami butterflies that change from white to a rainbow of colors.

You can’t help but wonder if TheUpsideUp was inspired by Mademoiselle Maurice’s street art works. Their first installation (seen below, in the last photo of this post) dates only back to August 8, 2012. Regardless, we’re looking forward to seeing what else they have in store for us. As their first installation states, love.
