Give Your Trash To Artist Tom Deininger

by Sherry Riter in Art  


Tom Deininger creates art from discarded items which we usually call trash.

Some of the trash is worse than others. For instance, this cute shell looks pretty good from a distance.

Up close, however, it isn’t very pretty.

Cigarette butts were collected and then used to form this bunny sculpture which I’m sure smells like stale tobacco. YUCK!

All in all, Tom Deininger is a very talented artist with a wonderfully, wild imagination. Besides, he is taking all the ugly trash and recycling! We have to give him kudos for being green.

Wow! That's quite something. I'd never heard of him before, but now, I'll make sure to pay attention to his creation.

Wow! That's rad. I should send him my husband's cig butts…he certainly has a collection of them.

Wow – that's amazing. MY trash certainly doesn't look like that!!!

Of course, I don't know that I'd want to play with it, either.

His creativity probably drove his mother nuts 🙂

how can something be so pretty and gross at the same time?

Ah yes, raising trash to the level of art. You've gotta love that!! It's best not to think about the content but to focus on the amazing(ness)of the whole.
