Street Artist Turns Rubbish into Sculptures to Raise Awareness on Pollution

Impressive enough if they were simply 2D murals painted onto building facades, Portuguese street artist Bordalo II (Artur Bordalo) takes his artwork a step further, adding 3D elements that are created using recycled waste.

Unlike most artists who go out and buy their materials Bordalo chooses to scavenge for the parts that he uses to create his impressive and larger than life animal sculptures.

Originally from Portugal a lot of Bordalo’s work originates from his home country however as he continues to spread his message about rubbish and the damage it causes to the environment his work has gone global. You can see more of his work on Facebook and Instagram.
