Butterflies out of Beer Cans, Paul Villinski’s Art

Paul Villinski beer can into butterflies What could you possibly do with an empty beer can? Crush it and throw it in the bin, would be the normal response. But artist Paul Villinski had a different idea.


He transformed these crushed aluminum cans into something really pretty; he made butterflies out of beer cans, which on installation would flutter with the breeze or appear to be flying.

The process of making this, according to Villinski is kind of a physical meditation, to find that inner stillness to craft delicate antenna of a butterfly from a beer can. He has also converted a discarded wheelchair and radio flyers into a glider, and converted used, old gloves into vessels, garments and sacks.
