To spread his message about endless waste production, Portuguese street artist Bordalo II (Artur Bordalo) creates stunning animal sculptures. However, unlike most artists, Bordalo doesn't buy his material - he scavenges it. He seeks to portray nature (animals) with the materials that threaten it.

Bored Panda has already written about Bordalo here and here but it's clear that the artist isn't going to stop his work anytime soon. While he started working in Portugal, now he is going global. His latest journeys feature stops in Estonia and the USA. He's bold, he's determined, and he's consistent - let's hope that Bordalo will stay this way and continue his fight.

A suitable location especially since it is on the wall of the headquarters of World Cleanup Day 2018 :) www.letsdoitworld.org #letsdoit #worldcleanupday2018 and it is the animal on the Estonian Nature Fund "coat of arms".
