Tire Sculptures by Yong Ho Ji
Tires recycling isn’t a problem for Korean artist Yong Ho Ji. He uses tire strips and synthetic resins to create unusual sculptures. Along with sculptures and busts of familar animals this collection contains hybrid animals and hybrid humans. The sizes of his creations vary from an eleven inch high dog to a goat with five feet tall horns to a ten feet long shark. “Ji’s work became famous after it was exhibited at New York’s Gana art in 2008 and since then has been shown around the world. To use recycled tires in his art form was a conscious decision by him as he wanted to make things which subtly conveyed the message about humanity’s responsibility towards nature and its conservation.” Have fun!
