3D Sculptures by Bordalo Segundo

I recently stumbled across these amazing sculptures by Bordalo Segundo a Portuguese street artist who uses garbage for his artwork. He transforms the abandoned trash of the streets such as wires, plastic sheets, tires into these colorful collages on a wood stand base. Bordalo exceptional work truly makes an ugly and a forgotten corner into a beautiful street art work often spray painted in vivid colors. His work is not only about recycle, "but also a critique of the world we live in, where we often have nice things, which are based on junk without realizing it."
