Sayanka Ganz, the Japanese born eco-artist believes in beautifying discarded objects which, she believes, have souls and spirits as well. Since her childhood, she has been transforming used and discarded stuff into animal forms by adding plastic residues to it. Just recently, she came up with the Charming Turtle sculpture which she crafted from discarded household items like sunglasses, cutlery, other kitchen equipment and some stuff from thrift stores.
Sayaka first creates a skeleton of wires and then, works on it to endow the structure with artistic touches. Eventually, what she produces is amazing works of art. Her sculptures take inspiration from the Japanese Shintoist belief that declaim that discarded objects weep at night at their plight. So, by transforming them into myriad animal sculptures, which include whales, fish, dogs and albatrosses, she saves them the agony of indifference they are subjected to in the bins.
Thus far, Sayaka has used thousands and thousands pieces of debris in her works. Accordingly, her amazing art has its own brand value and some of her works were sold for amounts as higher as € 10,000.
