Wanna see your favorite celebrities get totally trashed? Well, you’ve come to the right place!

Eco-friendly artist Jane Perkins is turning recycling into an art with her celebrity portraits made entirely of unwanted objects. The planet-pleasing designs are made entirely of recycled and reused objects that would normally be destined for the landfill.

About her work, Perkins says:

“It all started because I have a huge collection of stuff that I have amassed really since childhood. I used to do embroidery and beads and more traditional kinds of things. We did a few recycling projects in my degree course, which I really enjoyed, and from that I started making things with beach debris.”

Who knew hoarding could be so…artistic?
