On the Internet, you can find numerous great ideas how to recycle used items and people seem to just love those! It is a great way to keep our planet from pollution and to have some fun along the way. But what makes me feel excited the most is when people turn something that has no longer any purpose and would become a junk into a fantastic piece of art. These soda cans art pieces are just what i’m talking about.

This artist from Japan uses beer (and soft drinks) cans to make cool pop-culture sculptures. Batman, Darth Vader, Smurf, and My Little Pony are just some of the artworks made out of used cans by this creative artist, Makaon. In the process of creating pop culture characters sculptures, Makaon uses traditional origami techniques. The only difference is that she’s not using paper as her material but can tin. She named her creations ‘Making Various Things with Empty Cans’ – clear and simple!

Check out in the gallery some of her works and try to figure out which brand cans were used for particular sculpture. Have fun scrolling down! More info: Makaon website
