Portuguese street artist Artur Bordalo, known in the art world as Bordalo II, uses trash as his medium which he recycles into amazing street installation. Bordalo uses urban materials discarded by the city such as old car bumpers, worn down rubber tires, tangles of electrical cable and all sorts of plastic, and rearranges them into shapes representing the silhouettes of huge animals. He then spray paints over the entire thing to give them details.

Bordalo says his goal is to increase awareness of pollution and environmental degradation, which is affecting the habitat of the very animals he creates.
