Recycled Art

More and more contemporary artists have been kickin’ it old school these days…old school materials that is!

Recycled art is becoming increasingly more popular as these environmental friendly artists take their work mainstream. We’re talking apartment and home décor and furniture, sculptures, accessories, appliances, portraits, and other bizarre (and yet SO COOL) works of art that are diverging into a style all their own. And they’re all made of recycled…well, anything! —shoes, ping-pong balls, paper, plastic toys, aluminum cans, cardboard boxes, styrofoam. These artists are taking what would have been thrown into landfills and reusing them in a positive way.

Here are some of my favorite examples (more can be found at http://www.recyclart.org/)
