Brilliant Sculptures Crafted Out of Trash

Sculptures Crafted Out of Trash

Street artist Bordalo II from Portugal creates these amazing animal, reptile and bird sculptures out of street trash, old cars, used objects and items from abandoned factories, junk yards and construction sites. This is the most creative way to recycle the junk and come up with something really amazing. Check them out below.

I was born in Lisbon, 1987. I belong to a generation that is extremely consumerist, materialist and greedy. With the production of things at its highest, the production of “waste” and unused objects is also at its highest. “Waste” is quoted because of its abstract definition: “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. I create, recreate, assemble and develop ideas with end-of-life material and try to relate it to sustainability, ecological and social awareness.
