Waste to Art is an annual competition that features artworks created by community members using recycled and unwanted materials. The results are always highly imaginative, and thought-provoking with the collected artworks celebrating recycling and sustainable living. This year’s theme is steel and aluminium cans, a media that has been effectively used by artists around the world including New Zealand artist Michel Tuffery (pictured). Curated by Phil Aitkin Image credit: Michel Tuffery, Povi Christkeke 1999, Wellington, New Zealand. Mixed media: flattened "corn beef" tins, "Christmas tree lights", wooden frame.
