Back in the day, folding paper fortune-tellers were one of the greatest possessions a child could have, providing hours of fun and enough practice to (maybe) tell someone's fortune. Folding paper and drawing on it might not be a new concept, however, artist Ben Avlis managed to breathe a new life into it by creating stunning transforming art pieces.

Avlis creates an unexpected and eye-catching metamorphosis by folding his work in such a way, that the audience sees one figure when the paper is folded, and an expansion of it once the canvas is stretched out. When a quick motion is applied, it creates a 'popping' effect as if his works suddenly come to life. Quite fascinating, isn't it? Scroll down below to check the pieces and don't forget to comment and vote for your favorites!

Dolphins actually use pufferfish as a drug to get high, so this is fitting

Then you pull out the pencil, put it in the "eye" and manually roll the tape...
