Despite many of us burying our heads in the sand when it comes to pollution, the problem constantly exists. Most of us don’t do this intentionally, but it’s easy to ignore an issue when it’s not right in front of your eyes. Portuguese street artist Bordalo II (Artur Bordalo) understands this perfectly. His art is impossible to miss and has a huge impact on all who see it. Instead of buying materials for his art, Bordalo II scavenges trash, finding all he needs. Take a look at some of his impressive creations below!
Bordalo II initially started his artwork in Portugal but has since taken on the rest of the world including the USA and Estonia. We don’t doubt he will continue on around the globe and we really admire Bordalo II’s drive to make a difference, showing people in a magnificent way the waste that is all around them. We also think it’s very clever how he portrays animals using the materials that threaten them. Keep going to see more awesome works of art!
