From ancient times when pictures where engraved on rocks to present day where they have entered the world of computers, art has come a long way. I personally feel that art is by far the best medium to express one’s thoughts and feeling. The current trend with art is that one word we have been hearing everywhere – “Green”. Over the years, artists have drifted towards eco-friendly materials to give new meaning to their art. Besides, the word green adds an extra value to the artwork. So, here comes yet another duo giving you an eye treat in an eco-friendly manner. Two students from the University of Virginia have created a pixelated replica of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” using nothing but recycled bottle caps.
Ross Thomas and Elizabeth Farrell’s recycled version of Starry Night hold in itself as many as 8,000 colorful bottle caps. The 7′ by 9′ masterpiece is detailed to perfection. What’s the most interesting thing about this replica is the fact that the duo has used the colors and logos of the caps in just the right places to obtain a picture that doesn’t look any less than the original. I am sure their teachers and fellow students must be absolutely proud of their green initiative.
