Recycled Art – Toy Sculptures via Discarded Plastic Item
Robert Bradford, our talented childish mature artist, creates his life-size and larger-than-life sculptures of humans and animals from discarded plastic items, mainly toys but also other colorful plastic bits and pieces, such as combs and buttons, brushes and parts of clothes pegs.
Those sculptures are something unimaginably creative and definitely perfect showpieces for every child’s room. The incorporation of a mandala of colors and a toy finish may sound like a child’s play but goes out to show the talent and acme of creativity that the artist holds within!
Bradford says he likes the idea that the plastic pieces have a history, some unknown past, and that they also pass on a “cultural” history as each of the pieces represents a point in time. Recycling is not his primary concern, but each sculpture certainly keeps quite a few pieces from becoming landfill.
And now, you know what… don’t dump your junk, they might be turned into art some day…for more of Robert’s work, click here.
