3D Street Art Made From Recycled Trash
In Portugal’s capital city, a local artist is using garbage to make people think. Arturo “Bordalo II” uses discarded auto parts, scrap metal, and garbage to create colorful, larger-than-life 3D murals of animals. The animals represent the habitats humans have destroyed in their accumulation and discarding of stuff. He wants to raise the awareness of the way humans are destroying the environment and polluting the Earth. Bordalo II creates animals that have suffered a loss due to destruction by humans.
Artists around the world hope that awareness will continue to be a key, unlocking environmental disconnect locked away from many people by other priorities, including in many cases: poverty.
