Malaysia: Mohamad Rizal Kapandi

Mohamad Rizal Kapandi, Malaysia

Rizal has been a teacher for 4 years now, teaching aboriginal students in Malaysia. He loves fantasy, and pop-up books are a world for him where any fantasy can come true: it’s like something magical is hidden inside the book for you to find and explore.

Once only able to dream about pop-ups when he was young, Rizal is now able to collect pop-up books (though he has to buy them second-hand over the internet) and he has been using his collection to teach himself how to make pop-ups of his own. Despite having no formal art training, he has been able to learn a lot!

We are looking forward to seeing more of Rizal’s work in the future. We wish him much luck and success in the world of paper engineering!
