An Artist Turns Garbage Into Spectacular Sculptures, and It’s Another Call to Protect the Planet

4 years ago

In order to attract people’s attention to the problem of worldwide pollution, Portuguese street artist Artur Bordalo, whose Instagram account has already gained more than 200,000 followers, started to create stunning animal sculptures from trash. The artist confesses that he belongs to a generation that is consumeristic and greedy which leads to a lot of waste and pollution. He creates sculptures under the motto “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” making them from the objects that can harm the animals he depicts.

We at Bright Side wish Artur good luck with his art and feel eager to share with you some of his trash masterpieces.
