A dose of aluminum decomposes naturally in 100 years. Recycled, a dose can reach the shelf in just 60 days, consuming 95% less energy than the energy used to produce raw materials. Used for artistic purposes, aluminum cans can be turned into true works of art and awareness.
In order to draw attention to the importance of aluminum cans as a recyclable material, the Alucro Association organizes between July and August 2020 an exhibition caravan with paintings in aluminum cans, as a result of the Can Art & Design Festival competition. The reinterpretation of the famous work “The Kiss” (Klimt), the portrait of Salvador Dali, the Recycled Fairy, Dadaist Poem, are just some of the themes of the paintings that will be the subject of an exhibition in five locations in Bucharest.
On this occasion, the interested public will be able to admire the paintings made by Romanian artists and will be able to attend short demonstrations through which the aluminum cans are transformed into art objects.
The exhibition can be seen in the partner locations after the following program:
