Reblog: WebUrbanist on Trash Art


One of the fun things about going out of town and slacking off on the trash research for a bit is that when you finally get around to rooting around for what you missed, there’s quite a bit out there. Treat yourself to this excellent WebUrbanist post highlighting 7 trash artists. You’ll see some old favorites, like the miraculous silhouettes made from trash shadows to the world renowned trash people to street art made from trash. But there are some new (to me at least) discoveries in there as well: turkeys made from scrap metal and this lovely bear head made of woven plastic bags. If you ask me, there’s nothing sweeter than a plastic bag bear.

    I wonder how long it took to make that bear, and how much planning they had to do? The end result is awesome, though 🙂

    Here are some animals made from old, broken glass:

    It’s not quite as good as the polar brea, but it’s a beginning
