Japanese artist Natsuko Kogure uses recycled newspaper to create quirky, often humorous sea life. She turns her paper creations into everything from whales and blowfish to sea cucumbers and hermit crabs, often photographing the results on actual beaches. But for an exhibition at Gallery Le Bain in Roppongi that just opened yesterday, the artist is displaying 600 octopi that she’s created over the years.

You can see the colorful creations (hard to believe it’s all newspaper!) through the weekend until August 11.
