The 'White Trash' Series by Kim Alsbrooks is a reminder of the bitter war and history of class distinction in the golden era days. The series involves beer cans with 18th-century busts painted on.

Kim Alsbrooks created this series due to her disposition towards class distinctions. Based on the ancient history of war and social structure, the crushed beer cans were a canvas for the bust heads. The ancient historical portraits from museums are very creatively painted onto the beer cans, giving a new twist to this kind of art form.

If you want to explore 18th-century busts that are now interestingly painted on a trash of beer cans, the White Trash Series by Kim Alsbrooks is surely the way to go.
