The concept of shopping cart art has been around for a little while, but it hasn't really gained much momentum until just recently. The wire-framed objects are repurposed in unexpected ways that range from being completely taken apart and reformed to being stacked for a surreal art installation.
There are a couple finds here that see shopping carts turned into seating solutions for the home and even as birdcages. What's meant to be the main focus of these creations is the fact that artists are taking everyday objects and repurposing them; who would expect that something as ordinary as a shopping cart could become art?
They're found around the world and are the staple for lugging groceries around the store, which is why these shopping cart art creations hit home as being both next level and still in the comfort zone.
