Artist Kim Alsbrooks recreates a series of historical oil paintings on unlikely canvases, aluminum pop and beer cans to be exact. The artist takes something that has been discarded and gives it an archaic and beautiful spirit. Trash art is often synonymous with sculptures or installations that give garbage a new purpose but these can paintings are unlike anything we've seen before.

In the case of artist Kim Alsbrooks, her masterpieces are stunning and incredibly detailed. Her crumpled can medium is transformed from mundane object to a miniature piece of historical art that is no longer a piece of discarded garbage. The painter works with flattened cans of beer, pop and iced tea and creates oil paintings that stand out against their colorful and graphic packaging.
