Garbage turned into artworks

Tran Duy Vu and his work


While most of us throw beer cans away after drinking, a man in the central province of Phu Yen turns them into artworks.

Tran Duy Vu, 26, together with his family and friends in Tay Hoa District, has collected these cans to cut them into small objects or familiar features of the Vietnamese countryside like the bamboos, rice fields, or an egret.

These objects are then inlayed on velvet or plywood to create a specific painting.

Vu says it usually takes him three to five months to finish a painting. An employee at the district’s verdict execution sub-department, Vu says that he will give his works to friends and relatives before opening a manufacturing plant for this kind of works in the future.
