There are many ways to shed light on the threats that the planet is facing in the modern world, and Patrick Cabral is doing it through paper art. His intricate paper creations portray some of the world’s most endangered species.
The Philippines-based artist started his career in graphic design by focusing on typography. His Endangered Species series allowed him to branch out and combine his passion for calligraphy with 3D paper art while drawing attention to an important issue.
Cabral’s paper sculptures illustrate pandas, elephants, sea turtles, and many other threatened animal species. His main goal is to educate the public about the risks they’re facing and help out as much as he can by donating a portion of his earnings to charities supporting this cause.
“My art can help educate the younger generation about the plight of these species. I want everyone to go beyond social media and contribute their time and presence to causes that are important to them,” Cabral told World Wildlife Magazine.
