Recycled Clothing Art by Guerra De La Paz

The Cuban-born artist duo Guerro De La Paz have created a series of sculptural art works out of discarded, recycled clothing.  These figures of sculptural iconography are made from t-shirts, shoes, boots, socks and more, many of which have been dug out of secondhand stores in Little Haiti, Miami.  The message Guerro De La Paz conveys with their recycled clothing art is about the consume-and-discard nature of our mass-produced lifestyles.  Our habits of consumption put us so very far away from the creation of the items we use– and just as far away from the piles of trash they become.  Guerra De La Paz doesn’t see trash, in this sense, but an opportunity for artistic beauty and expression.   [guerra de la paz via mymodernmet]
