Pop stars often have their likenesses immortalised in doll form, but one artist has gone a step further and recreated music stars using old ticket stubs and the art of origami.

One Direction, Lady Gaga and Mick Jagger are among the people who have been recreated in gig tickets by origami master Mark Bolitho.

Mark spent hundreds of hours using thousands of ticket reproductions to pay homage to some of the biggest music acts across the globe, and his work is now on show at the Let the Ticket Live exhibition, which is at StubHub’s Great Portland Street ticket shop.

One Direction, featured in their trademark matching suits, represent the most searched for music act on StubHub.co.uk in 2012.

Goth rocker Marilyn Manson, who is touring the UK this week, also appears in origami form complete with distinctive black lips and heavy overcoat, while the Spice Girls have been lovingly recreated to celebrate the Viva Forever launch.

The Japanese art of paper folding dates back to the 17th century.
