Street Artist Uses Junk To Create ‘Big Trash Animal’ Sculptures
Even with our best efforts to recycle, there’s still a lot of trash around. It makes for a sad kind of material in Artur Bordalo’s (a.k.a. Bordalo II) animal sculptures. These are always collages of trash objects and can grow quite big. It’s a way to recycle, but also a means of criticizing the world we live in, and the consumerist culture which is destroying nature.
Bordalo II is the interesting kind of street artist that doesn’t rely solely on spray paint. Aside from these sizable animal sculptures he has made trash scenes featuring anthropomorphic mice that reenact the troublesome situations in our lives.
