Imaginative artist Gerd Rohling has a knack for turning trash into artistic treasure, which is exactly what he's done for his 'Nothing for All' exhibit. In this series Rohling has taken old gasoline canisters and turned them into intriguing face sculptures in a variety of bright colors.

Some of these canister sculptures seem to be sporting masks, while others have hats, halos and other elements that help to add interest. The 'Nothing for All' exhibit also includes a series of old bikes that have been made less than useless by replacing the tires with square metal plates.

This eye-catching exhibit can be found at the Gallery Piet Hein Eek. These thought-provoking works transform recycled materials into works of art.
