Jorge Pardo was born in Zaragoza, Spain in 1970, and his first contact with origami was at the Japanese Pavilion at Expo Seville in 1992, where he saw models by Akira Yoshizawa. During his subsequent military service he started to fold simple figures, such as jumping frogs and paper planes, and gradually became interested in modular origami. He joined the Zaragoza origami group in 2003, and started to create his own models the following year. His modular creations, such as his Flexiball, have spread through the origami world, and he has been special guest at conventions in Spain, Italy, Peru, and Japan.
Over those years he attended many national and international conventions, met many origami artists and exchanged ideas. Paul Jackson's ideas and experience influenced his development significantly, as did the work of Alex Bateman. Soon he was one of the first tessellation folders and creators in Germany, and has created many models of his own, folding some of them in miniature.
