Junk to one individual truly is art to another. Fortunately, this form of activism is cutting down on needless waste.
You don’t need to tell Artūras Tamašauskas twice that trash is a big problem worldwide. The artist, who is based in Lithuania, is quite aware that few humans consider the effects of their actions when tossing everything from plastic bags to appliances into landfills. Fortunately, he’s figured out a brilliant way to repurpose what some might consider to be ‘junk’ into art.
The artist wrote on Bored Panda:
“I create steampunk art and use various antique stuff and metal details. I hope to get some support from you.”
He is one of many individuals who is repurposing items that still have life in them to cut down on needless waste. Visit the artist’s website and Facebook page to learn more, and scroll through some of his sculptures below:
