An artist makes sculptures, using every day, commonly discarded objects. Meat, spoiling fruit, toothpaste, peanut shells, beer bottle caps, traffic cones, and even chewing gum wrappers have a purpose.

What would you do with spoiled food or used beer bottle caps? Probably, throw them away, right?

Well, a talented artist creates visually enticing sculptures, using everyday, commonly discarded objects.

Meat, toothpaste, peanut shells, beer bottle caps, traffic cones, even chewing gum wrappers have a purpose. The items are given a second shot at life in fun, innovative sculptures.

The artist stated “My artworks are often the accidental outcome of playful interactions between the materials and myself. I equally enjoy allowing my materials to define the context of my artwork, and conversely, the challenge of letting the context of my work dictate the material execution.”

Many of his ideas stem from basic tasks, like trips to the grocery store or antique shop. In one of his works, a deteriorating stack of bananas showcases a human smiling face.

The features are derived from intricate needlework, but onlookers have to do a double take to see the portrait, as it can easily be mistaken for typical fruit bruising.

Another masterpiece is an embroidered pork chop, showcasing a butcher chopping a helpless pig.
