Trash Bag Sculptures by Khalil Chishtee

November 07, 2013

Pakistani artist Khalil Chishtee uses trash bags to mold and sculp human figures.

"We live in the age of plastic, and plastic bags are the most ordinary form of this material. It goes back to the Sufi approach of my upbringing where worth does not depend on what you inherit, it depends on who you are. Anything made out of bronze, wood, stone or painted on a canvas carries the appearance of being worth looking at, because of its history, but if one can change the impact of that history, one is an artist."  (via)
