Artist Sakir Gokcebag creates beautiful, elegant artworks from rolls of everyday toilet paper. The saying "one man's waste is another man's treasure" has never been more true in this case.

The artist has the ability to turn this bland, everyday item into something that people will admire in an art gallery. From rolled-out wall-hung sculptures to cascading rolls of loo-roll coming down from the center of the room, this exhibition is on a grand scale.

The works entitled 'Trans-Layers I' and 'Trans-Layers II' defy traditional notions of elegance by using something that's usually flushed down the drain into an art form. The Turkish artist has certainly changed my mind as to just what can constitute a breathtaking work of art.
