Portuguese artist Artur Bordalo’s (aka Bordalo II) creates artwork from junk, but that doesn’t make it any less cute! He uses only junk to bring these animals to life, each of them a larger-than-life version of their biological versions.
Each statue carries with it a powerful message, because each animal is built from materials responsible for its decline. Bordalo II wants to raise awareness on the problems associated with waste materials and pollution: they are affecting wildlife, and by not recycling or reusing materials, we are using and wasting more and more resources, destroying more and more animal habitats.
