In Portugal’s capital city, a local artist is using garbage to make people think. Arturo “Bordalo II” uses discarded auto parts, scrap metal, and garbage to create colorful, larger-than-life 3D murals of animals. The animals represent the habitats humans have destroyed in their accumulation and discarding of stuff. He wants to raise the awareness of the way humans are destroying the environment and polluting the Earth. Bordalo II creates animals that have suffered a loss due to destruction by humans.
By reusing discarded materials and turning them into something beautiful, Bordalo II is doing his part to lessen the impact of human waste. May it inspire you to do the same. Check out more of his work on Facebook!
