British artist and illustrator Mark Oliver has created the ‘Litter Bugs’, a series of intricate insect sculptures made out of everyday found objects.
Each sculptural insect is named after the materials from which it was built.
According to Oliver, a ‘Litter Bug’ is a: ‘Arthropod sub-species of the Insecta class. A creature whose instinctual and physical qualities have adapted so uniquely to the modern urban environment that it has rendered itself, by nature of camouflage, virtually invisible in it’s normal habitat.
When seen in isolation ‘Litter Bugs’ appear to be composed of everyday ‘found’ objects.’
