Artist Turns Trash Into Animals To Remind Us About Pollution (30 New Pics)

‘Big Trash Animals’ by Artur Bordalo is a series of artworks that aim to draw attention to one of the world’s most pressing problems: Waste production. The overproduction of things like plastics and metals, a general lack of recycling and the ensuing pollution that it causes has a devastating effect on the planet, and we shouldn’t just learn to accept it as a necessary evil.

The Portuguese artist has had so much success locally in getting his message across, he’s now gone global. Following on from a previous post we now bring you his latest works, ranging from places as diverse as the USA, Estonia and Tahiti. Bordalo scavenges his materials from waste that was dumped in the area and produces stunning animal sculptures, in order to symbolize both the beauty of nature and the waste materials that threaten it.
