Reuse – Reduce Waste – Tyre Sculptors

Tyres are complex products consisting of more than 200 raw materials. These different raw materials make it difficult for tyres to be recycled.

Around the world several artists have been inspired by tyres and are very effective in sculpting old used tyres. Truly turning waste into art.  A few artists from around the world include Yong Ho Ji from Korea,  Lahcen Iwi from Morocco. Chakaia Booker from USA and Wim Delvoye from Belgium.  Nkwocha Ernest from Nigeria and Senegal’s Amadou Fatoumata Ba.
