Artist Noah Deledda uses sandpaper to remove the paint from aluminum cans and then uses his hands to bend and shape pleasing patterns into them.
Via Oddity Central:
In an interview with WEDU Arts Plus, the artist said that the most common response to his art is people saying that they have never seen anything like it before. He considers it ironic, because of course they have; people see crushed aluminum cans all the time, just not this way. Deledda sees his art as proof that a generally destructive force such as crushing can actually be creative and presented as art.
