Del Rio Ernesto
Ernesto lives in Pereira, Colombia. He works as an architect and a professor of drawing and descriptive geometry at the Technological University of Pereira.
As a child, he learned how to fold the traditional crane. But it wasn’t until 2007, when he began teaching origami to his son, Pablo, that he took up paper folding seriously.
Because of their wide variety in geometric patterning Ernesto is particularly interested in modular origami and he enjoys sharing and teaching these models to others.
One of the artists Ernesto admires in the origami world of design is Tomoko Fuse, a master of unit origami, and acclaimed throughout the world by all who know her work.
