Sculpted Murals Made from Trash

Street artist Bordalo II uses old tires, damaged bumpers, and other scraps of painted found trash to form impressive 3D murals of animals on the streets of Lisbon, Portugal. He’s exploring his own mixed media on wood stand base, and are thus made a series of collages of objects (garbage). It is not only a way to recycle, but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it.
