With Star Wars 7 and Rogue One out in theaters and soon onto DVD, there is more hype among the Star Wars fans across the world. There is one artist named Gabriel Dishaw who has dedicated himself in saving disposed tech by creating Star Wars sculptures. His goal is “to inspire people to think differently about waste, and hopefully influence them to take action.” You can find his sculptures on his Instagram and more information about his creations on the CBC website by clicking on this link. May the force be with you always.
Leaving trash around doesn’t look appealing to the public eye. Its filth just makes any area that you are in not look clean. Now here is the question: how can we turn trash into a form of street art that actually is publicly appealing? Well this Portuguese street artist named Artur Bordalo answers the question with his own monumental sculptures to not only use the mountains of waste he collects, but to raise awareness on the global’s unsustainable garbage production. From a grizzly bear to a skunk, he shows his art work on the streets of Portugal for the public to observe.
