A Nigerian artist is creating abstract art and portraits from upcycled garbage


Chibuike Ifedilichukwu, an artist from Nigeria, is creating celebrity portraits and abstract art using upcycled aluminum, plastic, wood, and other materials otherwise destined for landfills. For his portraits, Ifedilichukwu unfurls aluminum cans, carves them into strips, then weaves them into his own zero-waste canvas. Moving forward, he plans to create portraits of eco-conscious celebrities. Read more about upcycling waste into art.
