Turning Scrap Into Art: Mario Mallari

Artist Mario Mallari turns found metal into works of art. His works are great examples of recycled and repurposed items!

“The great joy in my work comes from turning something that is discarded and considered worthless into an artwork that is adored and appreciated. This shows my respect for the metal and nature. The thread that runs like red wire through all my works is recycling. My dream is to respawn as much old metal and scrap iron that i can find and one day turn it into a museum of modern art. Just thinking of this idea makes my heart beat faster.”
