This Dumpster-Diving Artist Is Turning Trash Into Beautiful Art

"Everybody in the world should just play around with the trash and see what they can turn it into."

Waste sculpture artist Thomas Dambo is on a mission to show the world how to turn trash into beautiful and meaningful artwork. When the artist was growing up in Denmark, he said he didn't have enough money to buy proper materials, so he resorted to digging through the trash. 

Throughout his distinguished career, Dambo has built large-scale art projects, furniture and over 3,500 birdhouses around the world.

Check out his work in the video above.
