We like to share inspiring posts here at The Reclamation Administration (waste can get depressing). These carved tires are a perfect example of artistic reuse. The website GreenMuze is has a nice variety of Cool Environmental News too – check them out!
Belgian artist Wim Delvoye has turned the problem of what to do with the millions, perhaps even billions of used tires generated each year around the globe – turn them into gorgeous works of art.
In his creative art tire series, dubbed Pneu (French for tire), the artist handcarves these incredibly detailed floral patterns into the black rubber. Delvoye transforms an ugly object into a unique work of art that also operates to upcycle a poor recyclable product that is clogging landfills around the globe.
