A giant bee on wall in Lisbon made entirely from waste


A street artist in Lisbon named Bordalo II, has a created a number of large public art pieces around the city made entirely from discarded objects.  This “fly on the wall” (or rather, bee on the wall) was constructed at a renovated industrial complex that now houses a number of design firms, cool shops, and restaurants.  When asked about his work, Bordalo II made the following comment: “I belong to a generation that is extremely consumerist, materialist and greedy. With the production of things at its highest, the production of “waste” and unused objects is also at its highest. “Waste” is quoted because of its abstract definition: “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. I create, recreate, assemble and develop ideas with end-of-life material and try to relate it to sustainability, ecological and social awareness.”
