September 5, 2022

This mural is made up of over 300,000 bottle caps. Children and adult residents of Guatire, Venezuela, have spent weeks participating in an unusual art project. The brightly colored mural depicts two giant macaw birds and it’s made of plastic waste. The display was the concept of 25-year-old artist Oscar Olivares. He reached out on social media asking people from the town to bring no longer needed pieces of plastic for his eco-friendly idea.
