Recycle & Recreate, a month long exhibition featuring artwork created by solely discarded MetroCards by artist Juan Carlos Pinto will be on display from December 2 through December 31, 2010 at the DIS Micro Gallery & "The Walkway," 147 Front Street Brooklyn, NY.
The exhibition presents selections of artwork by emerging artist Juan Carlos Pinto, who is known for this expressive, poignantly aggressive and revolutionary work. In partnership with White Train and DIS Micro Gallery, approximately 15 mosaic pieces will be on display featuring John Lennon, Frida Kahlo, and Salvador Dali to new a few.
Issues such as animal rights, environmental preservation, and empowerment of minorities are all topics frequently incorporated into Pinto's work. In his latest exhibition, Pinto stresses the importance of environmental conservation, with his usage of non-biodegradable plastic that normally will be discarded after its usage. Through his profound images and invigorating use of rescued elements, Pinto hopes to inspire others to critically think towards a greener environment.
