When garbage becomes art
Artist Edoardo Malagigi worked with Chinese youngsters to turn waste into towering sculptures
Towering sculptures made from garbage dominated the 'Pinocchio in Nanjing – Art from Waste' exhibition in the Chinese city.
Garbage art was revealed in all its splendor in Nanjing city.
Earlier this month, the Pinocchio in Nanjing – Art from Waste exhibition in the East China province of Jiangsu wowed spectators with a kaleidoscope of color.
More than 200 artworks were rolled out by Italian sculptor and artist Edoardo Malagigi after collaborating with Nanjing youngsters in a move to highlight the leftovers of a consumer society.
“The purpose of these works was the communication of an underlying message to the public,” Malagigi said on his website. “Often utilizing industrial processes and refuse, hundreds of types of waste were constructed to build a statement.”
