NYC’s trash is Paul Villinski’s art. These beautiful art pieces explore themes of transformation and recovery through the metamorphosis of crushed beer cans from the streets of New York into flocks of realistically crafted butterflies.

I like the transformation of what we look at as garbage with no value into beautiful art that some would pay hundreds and thousands to have in their homes.

I tried to include as many pictures as I could, if you like these art pieces, visit the artist’s gallery for more. And stop complaining about your boyfriend’s soda or beer drinking and use your creativity to save the environment and make some art.

Can art has been recently used in ‘artvertising’ by Red Bull Art of Can contest and exhibit. Check out Bianca’s report.
