Recycled Art

Artist: Rick Ladd – Bottle cap furniture is created from recycled caps saved by the nice bartenders who work at Rick’s local bar.

This creative recycled art sculpture was constructed in 2006 by Indian artist Subodh. Very Hungry God made its debut in Paris but it is now in the private collection of Francois Pinault, a billionaire French businessman with the biggest collection of contemporary art worldwide. At the time of this writing the amazing recycled art sculpture was on display outside of Pinault’s Palazzo Grassi by the Grand Canal in Venice.

Dr. Evermor’s Forevertron, built in the 1980s, is the largest scrap metal sculpture in the world, standing 50 ft. (15,2 m.) high and 120 ft. (36,5 m.) wide, and weighing 300 tons. It is housed in Dr. Evermore’s Art Park on Highway 12, in the town of Sumpter, in Sauk County, Wisconsin, United States.

Nick Georgiou recycles his old newspapers, but probably not in the same way that most people do. The Queens, NY based green artist makes three dimensional sculptures from the waste material including the piece pictured above which is reminiscent of Edvard Munch‘s famous painting, ‘Scream.’
