Street Artist Creates Mind-Blowing Painting/Sculpture Hybrids Out of Trash

Old tires, car parts, burnt garbage cans and broken household appliances are only some of the items used by street artist Artur Bordalo to bring to life the massive painting/sculpture hybrids he creates in the city of Covilhã in Portugal.

The idea? Show us gigantic, breathtaking, one-of-a-kind 3D images of animals whose habitats we’re destroying out of the very items that are destroying those habitats. The refuse he collects varies from general urban waste to machine parts from abandoned factories to items from companies that are going through a recycling process, but they all have one thing in common: they’re not good for the critters he depicts.

It’s an ingenious way to creatively display beautiful works of art and make a statement at the same time. If you’d like to see more from him, support him on Facebook and instagram!
