ART FROM TRASH: RECYCLED ART SCULPTURES YOU SHOULD KNOW

Art from trash and recycled materials.

Do you remember when we talked about the best street art sculptures? Well, today, we want to show you the most successful sculptures made with recycled material! In this post, we will see how art from trash can be a great thing.

Art from Trash… What is recycled art?

On a superficial level, recycled art can be defined as creative productions using waste or discarded objects. 

It can be argued that recycled art is more than just an attempt to exercise creativity with used materials to save money or take the more convenient option of using what is at hand to perform in a moment of inspiration. This is the case for most artists who create recycled art.

Regardless of the specific theme or environmental issue that a sophisticated artwork may address (of which there may be many) and underlying the simple act of using materials for the second or third time, there is a strong message that highlights the urgent need for greater awareness and behavioral change on an individual level in the way we relate to the world we live in.

This Portuguese artist raises awareness through the representation of nature with impressive sculptures that come to life in the city.
