Artist Carves Beautiful Trees from McDonald's Bags

David B. Smith Gallery"Whimsical" is one word that can be used to describe artist Yuken Teruya's work. Titled Notice - Forest: What Victory Tastes Like, the New York-based Teruya creates miniature trees from the Olympic's version of McDonald's bags and a bit of glue. The work is stunning: inspired by trees he has seen around his neighborhood and on his travels, Teruya weaves magic out of otherwise disposable bags. Ranging from designer (Paul Smith) to luxury (Laduree), Tekuya's trees are proof positive art can exist anywhere. His work is currently being exhibited at David B. Smith Gallery in Denver, CO.
