Bordalo II, a Portuguese artist, has been crafting sculptures with unconventional materials for years now, with a past project including 'Don't Trust the Media' -- which represented smartphones and television sets as trashcans as a means to convey a message that made clear his quality of the content that's often exuded from them.
In a more recent effort, Bordalo II created a series of wildlife sculptures, which seem to have the intent of exposing the environmental stress that so many species are under in current times. One which especially illustrates this is a piece that was done for an international graffiti festival in Tahiti, where Bordalo II presented an installation of a trash-made turtle swimming on a sea of plastic bottles.
