From trash to treasure

I came across these smashed cans where someone has added a face to them.  I don't know who the artist is, but I love how he or she has reflected the angle of the can into the face.  In a way I feel like they could just come to life and walk away.  But I am interested in what you think about them.



So do you think they are cool, interesting, boring or maybe even a little creepy?  Do you prefer their eyes open or the sleeping ones in the last image?  Do you have a favorite one?  Does the one can remind you of Mr. Snethen?  What would you paint on a smashed can if you found one?

  1. I think that the cans are really cool and a bit creepy. but the last one had to be the weirdest to me because they look so realistic.

  2. I like how this person is taking cans that would be trash and making them into art. They are painted so realistically that you look at some and wonder if there eyes will open or they will blink.

  3. I don't understand what would make this very hard. It just looks like someone mashed a pop can, and drew a face on it. I think we should do this because even I would be able to do this.

  4. They are interesting and also creepy, because of how the eyes look. I prefer the eyes like the one with the glasses since it is the least creepy. The closed eyes remind me of aliens and open is just, unsettling.

  5. The pop cans are nice and creative the person did a great job and making the faces and putting diffract types of texture into the cans.

  7. These are pretty cool. I think I prefered if they´re eyes were open because the sleeping ones kinda freak me out. My favorite one is probs the guy with the mustache. Yeah I can see the resemblance between with the guy with the mustache and Mr. Snethen. I would paint me.

  10. I think this is a really cool idea. I like how they thought to use pop cans and turn it into art. I would've never thought to do something like that.

  11. I think it is cool that they can make something that would be considered trash into a beautiful work of art. I like the ones that have their eyes open. I like the one with the eyeglass and the mustache the best.

  12. It makes sense. I have seen the comments above, and they say it's just trash, but if you look at it, it's hard work. It's dedication and time. People that took the time to create something that they believe is beautiful is something that can't be taken away from them.

  14. I really like some of these, but some are really creepy. My favorite one was the one with the mustache and the monocle. He kinda looks like the monopoly man.

  15. These pieces are very funny. They are really unique and different. I would never have thought of the idea to do these.

  16. I like them. The sleeping ones are peaceful looking and seem content with life and where they are. Using trash as art is a good idea.

  17. These still look like TRASH. If I saw an artist putting this in their gallery, I would be ashamed, even though it's better than what I can do.

  18. This one is really creepy. I really don't like it. To me it looks really dumb

  21. I really like how they take old cans and turn them into something really cool. The faces look so real.

  22. These are really cool. They seem to be a bit easier but you would still have to be careful on how you fold them. It would be a little creepy if they were just sitting on side streets.

  23. I really like the heads on the cans they look so good on the cans.

  24. I like that some took something that no-one would appreciate (except maybe recycling) and try to make it more. It shows that anything on the street, from your lunch, or maybe from the trash can become into art. It can show you a different point of view.

  25. I don't know exactly how I feel about this art. I can not really say that I like the faces because they remind me of Thomas the Train and he is kind of whack!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think that's cool and something I would do for fun. I'm always seeing faces in things and drawing them in my mind. They're pretty cool but also very creepy.

  27. Those cans look amazing and I really have no idea how they made them look so good

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think the one with the moustache does remind me of Mr.Snethen. and the other ones are creepy and weird. and I think the person who made these are probably insane and should be tied up on a straight jacket and put in one of those nice fluffy prison cells with cushions everywhere.

  38. those are cool cans, the one looks like mr. sneethen kinda but theyre all super cool and someone could probably make money off of them

    ReplyDelete
  39. These are very creepy and dumb in my opinion but other could like them. Personally I think they were kind of a bad piece of art. If I saw these I wouldn't really think much about them;.

  40. I think that the painting looks beautiful and that the painting must have been very time consuming because its excellent

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like this concept because it's turning a garbage into art and that's something people will always overlook,the fact that we have piling up garbage, I love these peices tho

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like this. Its cool but a little creapy at the same time

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really like this. Turning garbage into art is actually a really cool idea. It doesn't look like it would be too time consuming so either so it's cool to see something easy but still really interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  44. People say that garbage isn't art but this painting proves that it can be turned into wonderful art. I like how they made faces in the cas to make it look realistic. I love these , it's a really smart and excellent idea.

  45. I like these tin can projects. But at the same time they are kind of creepy at the same time but cool. I would try to do these projects

  47. I at first thought it was a sloth. I personally think they're kinda creepy. Imagine walking down the street and seeing a pop can staring at you. I think the faces are really cool though.

    ReplyDelete
  48. These look very interesting and unique. I dont think they would be difficult at all. But they kind of look a little weird.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This isnt really cool. How creepy would the art room look if we did this as a project??there is seriously an artist that just does this? not my style

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't like this one. They look creepy and i wanted want to do this project.Did they use cans?

    ReplyDelete
  51. THis is my most favorite thing that I have seen on this site. THey are very creative. I love them

    ReplyDelete
  52. this would be cool to do with all the cans at my grandparents house because they have tons of cans to do use, which would be good because i will probably screw up a couple of times.

  53. tis is really cool on how they did this on cans and all the detail in the faces

    ReplyDelete
  54. really like how they take old cans and turn them into something really cool. The faces look so real.

    ReplyDelete
  55. this is really cool and it is also really funy

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like how they can incorporate faces on cans and it makes it even better with the background and it makes the art 100 times better
