Among his cardboard sculptures, animal sculptures are more numerous. Olivier Bertrand has a passion for the environment. The artist states that he chooses powerful animals. It is kind of a dilemma. Because his cardboard can be destroyed easily. But the animals he chooses are real power symbols in the wild. So, can we say that every powerful creature hides a weakness?

Olivier Bertrand collects cardboard with different thicknesses. To create his cardboard sculptures, he uses thicker cardboard for the frame. The thinner cardboard is for the rest of the body. Olivier cuts cardboard into small pieces and connects them to create a sculpture. Although most of you presume that the sculptures are not durable, the artist uses special resin to make them more durable.
