Plastic art


An art studio with no brushes or paint.
Mbongeni Buthelezi uses strips of plastic melted and glued to the canvas for his portraits.
When the South African studied art he couldn’t afford to buy expensive materials. So he found an alternative and now produces this unique kind of art.
He collects plastic bags from the streets around his Johannesburg studio and has turned recycling into an art form.


melted   made soft or made into a liquid
canvas thick and strong cotton cloth that artists paint on with oil paints
afford have enough money
unique  (here) unusual and not made anywhere else
recycling using waste materials again
