This is definitely one of the cooler displays of art I’ve seen this year.Â Â Thomas Dambo is a Danish artist who works with recycled materials. Over the last 3 years he’s made 25 big recycled sculptures around the world. Recently he made 6 hidden giants in his hometown of Copenhagen.Â Thomas describes the project as such:
The sculptures are found in some of my favorite places around the city, places where people donâ€™t go to often, because itâ€™s off the beaten track. The sculptures can only be found by using a treasure map, or a poem engraved into a stone near each sculpture. These give hints on how to find the different giants.
Iâ€™ve made all the sculptures from recycled wood. Mainly from 600 old pallets, an old wooden shed, a fence and what ever else I was able to scavenge. Every sculpture was made with the help from local volunteers, and each of the sculptures was named after one of the volunteers. I hope my art will inspire people to see the big potential in recycling and taking better care of our planet.
