Japanese illustrator Takako Handa creates recycled cardboard art using discarded food and snack packaging. His charming collages boast scenes of urban cyclists, street vendors and rock bands among others that are intricately crafted.

The artist cuts up Japanese packaging and reassembles it together to create his collaged compositions. Though concealing most of the packaging that he uses, Takako Handa lives snippets of its typography in his finished pieces. This hit of typography adds a vivid touch to his artworks.

This series of recycled cardboard art boasts vivid colors and reveals unlikely and unexpected visuals. Takako's works celebrate imagination and prove that discarded materials are often the best medium for artists who are looking to push their creative boundaries.
