Many of us have built a small paper-craft object once or twice in our lives, but graphic designer Taras Lesko takes it to a whole new level. The determined artist, who is no stranger to working with paper, has built everything from Gundams, wall art, and 3D busts out of the fragile material. Most recently, Lesko completed constructing a very impressive life-size Lamborghini Aventador A-E2 police interceptor. The piece, made entirely out of glue and chipboard mounted prints, measures 8 feet long and weighs approximately 25 pounds.
The designer, who was dared by his wife to undertake the ambitious project, experimented with new techniques and materials to replicate the vehicle. He says, “It [is] my biggest and heaviest papercraft model to date. …Did I mention most expensive? The cost for printing and materials set me back $1,000, but the creative experience was well worth it.”
Check out a time-lapse video, below, of Lesko crafting the piece together from start to finish.
