The Olga Kostina bottle cap art features abandoned plastic bottle caps to bring color to otherwise bland environments. Olga, who is from Kamarchaga, Russia, collects bottle caps of every color and turns them into eccentric murals on the wood of her Siberian taiga home using a hammer and nails.

Instead of using fabric to weave knots, Kostina uses the caps to mimic the solid borders and spiral embroidery. She also throws in a few unconventional twists by including portraits dedicated to the animals she sees wandering around in the wooded areas near her home.

The use of disposable plastic water bottles is a pressing issue in today's society, with so many being thrown out each day. Olga Kostina bottle cap art offers a way to turn harmful plastic waste into eye-catching eco-art.
