Here’s a great piece of art to remind you, we’re still in the year of the dragon:
This works on many levels. Chinese artist, Qiu Zhijie, created the Oil Can Dragon, a public sculpture that featured, you guessed it, oil cans reorganized and re-imagined into a dragon. In 2011, the oil can dragon was was placed at the doors of the CAFA Biennale art exhibition in Beijing, and as we just read, in traditional Chinese culture, use of oil drums suggests a tension between the natural and modern worlds.
Love this shit.
