John Dahlsen- Environmental Artist and Contemporary Painter

I am a huge fan of our planet, and strongly believe in reusing and recycling. We are all aware of the plastic bag problems of the world, but that is the tip of the iceberg. Art is one way of utilising the masses of rubbish that clutter and damage our environment. Not only is it a potential statement to use by products and 'rubbish', but its cheap - it doesn't cost you anything!
Check out John Dahlsen's awesome work, it's very inspiring.
