Mario and Other Pop Culture Icons Made from Recycled Cans: The Aluminum Kingdom
October 17th, 2012
It’s-a me can Mario. This awesome Mario sculpture is made entirely from recycled cans by artist Makaon, who does some pretty amazing work. He uses discarded beer and soda cans to create all kinds of cool characters.
The cans are used as the color palette to create the characters and the patterns on the cans add a neat visual look. Some of Macaon’s other creations include various Pokémon, Ultraman and Darth Vader just to name a few. Check out the gallery below to see more of these amazing sculptures.
Imagine if we reused all of the wasted soda and beer cans and created huge public geek sculptures like these. That’s a world that I want to live in.
