What this Japanese artist can do with simple aluminum cans is going to blow your mind. The artist, known as Makaon, takes aluminum recycling to a whole new level. Instead of discarding his old cans, either as trash or for recycling, he turns them into elaborate and surprisingly colorful works of art.
His creations are a combination of pop culture references and more traditional subjects. Makaon’s creativity is more than just shaping the cans into the form of his subjects. He also needs to work within the color restraints of the cans. The result is both quirky and sophisticated.
