Recycled Into Art - Part 4

Another day and some more art made by recycling waste materials or using inexpensive everyday materials in a new way.

I've been a big fan of Mark Jenkins' street art for some time; his creepily realistic human figures are wonderful. Do have a look at his website and gallery here. But, recently, he's made some pieces by a process of 'guerilla moulding' using nothing more than sticky tape. The results include these curious animals (see below). Want to see how it's done, step by step? Click here.

Ducks floating down the stream in Washington, D.C.

I saw some art by Dean Patman at the Medici Gallery in London today. He's another artist that cleverly uses household objects to make animal sculptures:

And last, but not least, for today we have Jason Mecier who creates poignant collages and portraits from garbage.
