Van Gogh painting in 30,000 bottle caps
You might think those caps from your water bottle or soft drink are trash. But some students have used their artistic skills to create art from these bottle caps.
Over 50 students at a middle school in Taizhong city in Taiwan re-created Van Gogh’s masterpiece painting ‘Starry Night’on Thursday, using more than 30,000 bottle caps. The artwork, which was 5.4 meters long and 3.6 meters wide, took them a good part of their morning to finish.
Wu Qingchuan, their art teacher, came up with the idea as a way to promote recycling and also encourage students to put their creativity to test, according to China Foto Press.
The students started collecting the caps since summer and later categorized them by colors.
So what are you planning to do with your bottle caps?
