More Recycled Art

by on Jul.30, 2009, under Art

I got an email from Sierra club yesterday and the eco tip was to buy art created from recycled materials. The thought had never occurred to me to seek out art based on what it’s made out of but of what the image is or what it means to me. A clever tip nonetheless in this time of environmental concern. Recycled art keeps garbage out of the landfill, provides another creative outlet, as well as a unique item for the consumer.

Many recycled art I’ve seen have been nifty reproductions of master works. Just an observation and I fall into that myself with my bizarre beer cap collection. I’ll probably just make a large starry night since most beer I drink tends to have blue caps.

I found this on Digg yesterday. Reproductions of Mona Lisa done with everything from a lawn to old computer parts.

A local artist, Barry Stickerman Snyder, creates art out of produce labels. In addition to an American Gothic reproduction, he has amazing original works that have an almost southwestern mosaic feel to them.
