This Japanese Artist Does Something Amazing With Empty Aluminium Cans

A Japanese artist known as Makaon likes to take his aluminum recycling to a whole new level. Instead of getting rid of his old cans, he uses his artistic talent to turn them into amazing works of art, many of which are tributes to famous characters in pop culture. A word of warning: don’t try any of this at home unless you know what you’re doing – cans that have been cut are sharp and easy to cut yourself on!
