Quinqueflor Mordida #09 Original 100% Recycled, Hand Cut Iron Lak Aerosol Paint Can Sculpture Artwork by graffiti street artist modern pop artist Canlove.
"We dubbed these flower creations Metaliflora and we’ve been experimenting with different shapes and forms for a few years. We challenged ourselves to create the greatest and most efficient use of one recycled spray paint can. The flower bloomed naturally. This series is partially about us returning to our roots. When we started cutting these flowers we wouldn’t paint them as we often do now. We’ve been venturing into this raw approach with some of our other work. It feels right to introduce it with this series as well.The can popping process always produces a unique pattern inside the can because as the marble moves around inside it leaves its tracks on the wet paint. Each flower is cut by hand and no two flowers are exactly alike. Each one is completely unique. And every box we shipped had a custom paint job." - Canlove
