Artist makes mural from bottle caps to raise awareness

Feb 01, 2020 15:07 IST

An artist from Venezuela has transformed a once-abandoned plaza in the country's capital with a huge, vibrant mosaic made of bottlecaps. Four huge macaws, bright sunflowers and images of El Avila national park burst from the 43-metre (141-foot) long wall in a Caracas neighbourhood. The artist worked with the local environmental groups to collect over 200,000 bottlecaps from local residents. The effort has helped bolster environmental consciousness at a time when the country's economic crisis has led people to misuse green spaces as dumping grounds.
