Mark Langan's corrugated cardboard sculptures are true biodegradable art pieces. The cardboard is sourced from Langan's neighborhood in Brunswick Hills, Ohio. Langan's first piece was titled 'Max & Lori's Move' and used his neighbors' discarded moving boxes.

Mark Langan doesn't render his designs on a computer, sketching them by hand instead. This self-taught artisan took up working with cardboard after he was laid off from his desk job.

Implications - As eco consciousness increases, artists are continuously incorporating recyclable materials into their work. This green art generates buzz in a green-obsessed world, but also furthers a popular artist goal: to transform something seemingly old and unusable into something new and exciting. The drive towards environmental friendliness has impacted virtually every industry, and the art world is no exception.
