Ever wondered if those old tires on your car could be used for something else after they've served their purpose? Well, wonder no more.


Korean sculptor Yong Ho Ji has invented a new visual language based upon recycled tires. By gluing and screwing all types of tires onto resin-cast skeletons, Yong acheives an exquisite levels of anatomical detail. The artist uses the tough tires of tractors, mountain motorcycles and cars to create the large bodies of beasts, shredded motorcycle tires to elaborate the limbs of a lion, and turned out tires to represent fur. Yong explains, “Rubber is very flexible, like skin, like muscles.”

WOW! These are phenomenal!

Thank you for sharing, I must pass these along. Being an artist myself, I feel shame for not being near this talented.

It's impressive to see recycled materials going to good use.

I couldn't agree with you more. They're amazing works of art, but more impressively, out of recycled tires. I've seen many things recycled into art, but never tires! Talented artist Indeed

Very impressive...and the size of some of them. Loved the horse and the buffalo best but they're all good.
