Recycled Tire Sculptures

Korean artist Yong Ho Ji uses old tires, steel, wood, and styrofoam to create these masterful scuptures.  His sculptures generally represent endangered and mythological species blended perfectly with a near human physical structure and features of animals known to us with the help of meticulously cut strips of tire representing flesh, muscles and curves of the bodies. You can see more of his work at his web site.

Yong Ho Ji is a Korean sculpture who was born in 1978. He did his BFA in sculptures from the Hongik University in Seoul and later moved to New York to complete his MFA in fine arts from New York University.
